Republic Act No. 9485 or the Anti-Red Tape Act provides that government employees engaging in illicit transactions with fixers can be dismissed from service.

Violators shall face imprisonment of less than six years and fines ranging from P20,000 to P200,000.

People who deal with fixers when applying for documents from any government office can be held liable under the law.

In one case, the Supreme Court held that "a public official or employee should avoid any appearance of impropriety affecting the integrity of government services" (GR. NO.178454) fb/phijurisOfficial/
