Q&A with Atty. Rami Amer Hourani - Can you still get 13th month pay this year despite COVID-19?
For this Q&A series, we asked Atty. Rami Hourani about the legal obligations of employers to pay 13th month pay in light of COVID-19.
This year poses a special problem for both employers and employees when it comes to 13th month pay. Almost everyone was closed for business at some point in time during the first half of this year in compliance with the government’s lockdown restrictions. This has left many employers and employees confused on their legal obligations and entitlements respectively when it comes to 13th month pay.

Q&A with Atty. Rami Amer Hourani - What happens if a lessee fails to pay rent?
In our "Ask an Attorney - Q&A series", we interview our Partner Lawyers regarding legal issues that are timely and relevant to you. The aim of this series is to provide you with legal guidance from our Partner Lawyers.
COVID-19 has left many Filipinos and businesses unable to pay rent.

Once the time inevitably comes for the lessee to pay rent, what will happen if the lessee fails to pay?
For this Q&A series, we interviewed Atty. Rami Hourani about your options (a) as a lessee if you cannot pay rent; and (b) as a lessor if your lessee fails to pay rent.
