MANILA, PHILIPPINES – In light of recent events following the COVID-19 global pandemic and the enhanced community quarantine measures deployed across the country, Filipino fast food giant Jollibee Foods Corporation has decided to take action and help alleviate the issue for their employees as well as people working in the frontlines.
JFC Chairman and Founder Tony Tan Caktiong shared that in these trying times, they have decided to create a support fund for its employees amounting to a billion pesos to help provide financial assistance to their employees. The support fund will be used to continue paying for their employees’ salaries during the duration of the lockdown from March 15 to April 15, 2020. The fund will also be used to enable employees to receive their thirteenth month pay by April, as well as convert and advance leave credits should they need to do so.
