Abstract In 2004, the Department of Labour and Employment of the Philippines developed an innovative Labour Standards Enforcement Framework (LSEF) aimed at introducing an alternative mechanism for carrying out labour inspections, bearing in mind the limited number of labour inspectors and the increasing number of establishments that need to be inspected. This document reports on the level of implementation of inspections following the introduction of the LSEF. Although the proportion of establishments being inspected has increased, recommendations are proposed for achieving further improvements.
