MANILA, Philippines - After losing its franchise following last Monday’s deadly accident, Don Mariano Transit could face more sanctions.

 

Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz yesterday said the bus firm could face additional penalties if it is proven to have violated various labor regulations.

 

“We are already looking into the possible violations of labor regulations in relation to overtime work and wages. If found to have violated regulations on overtime work and wages, the bus company needs to indemnify their workers,” Baldoz said.

 

Under Labor Department Order No. 118-12 entitled, “Rules and Regulations Governing the Employment and Working Conditions of Drivers and Conductors in the Public Utility Bus Transport Industry,” bus drivers should not be allowed to drive beyond 12 hours.

 

“We are still determining if the driver prior to the accident had been working for more than 12 hours and could already be too sleepy to drive,” Baldoz said.

 

Based on initial information, Baldoz said the safety of the bus involved in the accident was at “high risk.”
