Red flags on liability risks for companies operating in the Philippines

Summary:

This 'Red Flags' guide seeks to help companies in the Philippines avoid participation in human rights abuses and be accountable in cases where they are liable.

It is an attempt to communicate, in simple, clear terms, the nature of liability risk (i.e. potentials for litigation) based on research into recent case law.

Company compliance officers, legal counsels, risk analysts, and others involved in risk management will find this a useful guide.

It may also be useful for communities who seek to better understand their rights in relation to claim-making and negotiation.
