The Philippines' Department of Labor and Employment (Filipino: Kagawaran ng Paggawa at Empleyo) (commonly abbreviated to "DOLE") is the executive department of the Philippine Government mandated to formulate policies, implement programs and services, and serve as the policy-coordinating arm of the Executive Branch in the field of labor and employment. It is tasked with the enforcement of the provisions of the Labor Code.
The Department of Labor & Employment (DOLE) was founded on December 8, 1933 via the Act No. 4121 by the Philippine Legislature. It was renamed as Ministry of Labor and Employment in 1980. The agency was renamed as a Department after the 1986 EDSA Revolution in 1986.
