foreigners who are proceeding to the Philippines to engage in any lawful

existence of an employer-employee relationship, the following elements are
generally considered: (1) selection and engagement of employee; (2)
payment of wages; (3) the power of dismissal and (4) the employer's power
to control the employee with respect to the means and methods by which the
work is to be accomplished.

for hospitals, scientists, professionals and other workers for banking,
commercial, industrial, agricultural and other business enterprises may
