1. You can “legally” kill people. Under Article 247 of the Revised Code, anyone “who having surprised his spouse in the act of committing sexual intercourse with another person, shall kill any of them or both of them in the act or immediately thereafter, or shall inflict upon them any serious physical injury, shall suffer the penalty of destierro.”
2. We still dole out excessive penalties for libel. Perhaps no other law of late has garnered as much controversy as Republic Act No. 10175 or the Cybercrime Law, specifically the part where it punishes libel.
3. The State will do its darndest to get a couple to stay married. Ever wonder why, Catholic culture notwithstanding, it’s so hard for couples to get away from loveless or hopeless marriages in the Philippines?
4. Annoying people can be charged for being merely annoying. The second paragraph of Article 287 states that “any other coercion or unjust vexations shall be punished by arresto menor or a fine ranging from 5 pesos to 200 pesos, or both.”
5. Women get charged with adultery, men get charged with concubinage. One look at Article 333 and 334 of the Revised Penal Code and you can see why the law tends to be stacked against women.
6. Our immigration laws are ridiculously ancient. Commonwealth Act No. 613 or the immigration law reeks of antiquity, considering it was made and implemented in 1940.
7. Metro Manila has a convoluted traffic scheme. First implemented by the MMDA in 1995, the Unified Vehicle Volume Reduction Program’s original purpose was to decrease traffic congestion in the metropolis through a number coding scheme.
8. Squatting is not a crime. Republic Act 8368 or the “Anti-Squatting Law Repeal Act of 1997” repealed former President Marcos’ Presidential Decree No. 772 which penalized squatting, technically making it a non-crime as of today on the basis that squatters are also victims of an unequal justice and social system.
9. Your family members and in-laws who commit theft, swindling, and malicious mischief against you are not criminally liable. Article 332 of the Revised Penal Code states that “No criminal, but only civil liability shall result from the commission of the crime of theft, swindling, or malicious mischief committed or caused mutually by the following persons
10. You cannot own a deadly “pana.” One of the more obscure laws made during the 1960s was Republic Act No. 3553, or the “Anti-Pana Law”. Under this law, “anyone who possesses a deadly arrow or ‘pana’ without a permit from a city, municipal, or municipal district mayor, shall be punished by imprisonment for a period of not less than thirty days nor more than six months.

Regular/Permanent Employment Regular or Permanent Employment is when an employee performs activities that are necessary or desirable to the business/trade of the employer.

2. II. Minimum WagesMinimum wage rates in the Philippines vary per region and are prescribed by the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board(RTWPB). Under the most recent wage order for the National Capital Region (i.e., Metro Manila), the minimum gross rate is Php 500.00 per day.
3. Under the Labor Code, employees in the private sector are granted six (6) basic mandatory benefits, which are as follows: 1. Social Security System(SSS) – the social insurance program for employees in the private sector, which provides these employees and their families protection from disability, illness, old age, and death 2.
