A group of Human Resource Management (BSBA – HRM) students from PUP Quezon City published a study examining the impact of the Solo Parents’ Welfare Act of 2000 to selected solo parent employees in call center companies. The study titled “Solo ON and OFF Duty: Challenges of Selected Solo Parent Employees in Call Center Companies and the Implication of Republic Act 8972” has been accepted for publication in the International Journal for Research Innovation in Social Science (IJRISS) Volume VI, Issue III of the Research and Scientific Innovation and Society on its March 2022 release.
The published article describes the saga of the solo parents in relation to the 20-year-old Republic Act 8972. The researchers sought the expert opinion and personal testimonies of the participants in addressing the complex problems of today’s solo parents. Findings of the study served as basis for recommendations in aid of legislation to the local government units (LGUs) with support from the non-government organizations (NGOs) in championing the cause of solo parents.
Ralph Joseph C. Tuazon led the group of researchers, with Jessa C. Butiu, Sittie Farhannah C. Natangcop, Jessa Mae L. Lonzaga, and Marie Katrina A. Lim. Prior to publication, the paper was first presented in the National and International Paper Presentation for Students (Project NIPS 2021) and during the International Research Conference in Higher Education (IRCHE 2021) organized by the Polytechnic University of the Philippines.
