Voluntary Resignation

Resignation is defined as the voluntary act of an employee who finds himself in a situation where he believes that personal reasons cannot be sacrificed in favor of the exigency of the service and he has no other choice but to disassociate himself from his employment. (Virgen Shipping Corp. vs. Barraquio, G.R. No. 178127, April 16, 2009 citing Valdez vs. NLRC.)

The key is that resignation must be a “voluntary act”, and that the employee must have knowingly and voluntarily dissociate himself from his employment for his own personal reasons. It does not cover cases where the employee is forced to resign with the use of threats, intimidation, coercion or manipulation, or where resignation is imposed as a penalty for an offense.

The common practice of allowing an employee to resign, instead of terminating him for just cause so as not to smear his employment record, also fall under the category of voluntary resignation. (See J Marketing Corp. vs. Taran, G.R. No. 163924, June 28, 2009).

Resignation Notice

The Labor Code requires the employee to give an advance notice to the employer of his intention to resign. The notice of resignation must be in writing and must be served to the employer at least one month prior to the effective date of his resignation.

Resignation notice usually takes the form of a letter (commonly called “resignation letter”) addressed to the employer, expressing the employee’s intention to terminate his employment. It must state the date when resignation is to take effect because of the 30-day notice requirement under the law. It may also contain the reason or justification of the employee for filing his resignation, although legally, this is not important. The employee may resign for whatever reason, or even for no reason at all. Thus, in legal parlance, voluntary resignation is also called “termination by employee without just cause.”

Resignation letter normally contains explicit words expressing employee’s intention to terminate his employment. However, lack of explicit words stating the employees intention to resign is deemed not crucial, as long as the employees intention to resign can be deduced from letter itself. In one case, the Supreme Court held that a memorandum written by the employee containing his deep resentment towards his superior juridically constituted a letter of resignation. Even if the employee did not expressly indicate his intention to resign (neither of the words “resign” or “resignation” was mentioned), the resentful and sarcastic tone of the memorandum was held to be sufficiently indicative of such intention.

Effect of Failure to Tender Resignation Notice

If the employee fails to give the employer one month advance notice of his intention to resign, he may be held liable for damages.

Instances when Notice of Resignation is Not Required

The employee may resign even without serving any notice on the employer for any of the following reasons:
  1. Serious insult by the employer or his representative on the honor and person of the employee;
  2. Inhuman and unbearable treatment accorded the employee by the employer or his representative;
  3. Commission of a crime or offense by the employer or his representative against the person of the employee or any of the immediate members of his family; and
  4. Other causes analogous to any of the foregoing.

Resignation under any of the instance enumerated above is also called “termination by employee with just cause.”

Separation Pay

An employee who voluntarily resigns from his work is not entitled to separation pay. There is no provision in the Labor Code which grants separation pay to voluntarily resigning employees.

Separation pay as a rule is paid only in those instances where the severance of employment is due to factors beyond the control of the employee. Thus, in case of retrenchment to prevent losses where the employee is forced to depart from the company due to no fault on his part, separation pay is required by law to be paid to the dismissed employee.

The case is totally different in case of voluntary resignation where severance of employment is due to employee’s own initiative. The law does not oblige the employer to give separation pay if the initiative to terminate employment comes from employee himself.

However, by way of exceptions, there are at least two instances where an employee who voluntarily resign is entitled to receive separation pay, as follows:

  1. When payment of separation pay is stipulated in the employment contract or Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA, for companies with existing bargaining agent or union);
  2. When it is sanctioned by established employer practice or policy.

In Hinatuan Mining Corporation, et al. vs. NLRC, et al., G.R. No. 117394, February 21, 1997, the court ruled viz.:

“It is well to note that there is no provision in the Labor Code which grants separation pay to voluntarily resigning employees. Separation pay may be awarded only in cases when the termination of employment is due to: (a) installation of labor saving devices, (b) redundancy, (c) retrenchment, (d) closing or cessation of business operations, (e) disease of an employee and his continued employment is prejudicial to himself or his co-employees, or (f) when an employee is illegally dismissed but reinstatement is no longer feasible. In fact, the rule is that an employee who voluntarily resigns from employment is not entitled to separation pay, except when it is stipulated in the employment contract or CBA, or it is sanctioned by established employer practice or policy.” [Citations omitted.]

In Lilia Pascua, et al. vs. NLRC, et al., G.R. No. 123518, March 13, 1998, the Supreme Court, reiterated that:

“The grant of separation pay, however, is inconsistent with existing employment or voluntary resignation, for it presupposes illegal dismissal.”

Special cases

In addition to the exceptions cited above, there are other cases where the court may award separation pay to voluntarily resigning employee. For example, in Alfaro vs. CA, G.R. No. 140812, August 28, 2001, the Court ordered the payment of separation pay despite holding that the employee voluntarily resign from service, and although such payment was not mandated under the CBA or employment contract. Same conclusion was arrived at in J Marketing.

In both of the above cases, the employer agreed to give separation pay to the employee as an incident of the latter’s resignation, but later on renege in the performance of such commitment. The Court held that such practice should not be countenanced.

In Alfaro, the Court ruled as follows:

“Generally, separation pay need not be paid to an employee who voluntarily resigns. However, an employer who agrees to expend such benefit as an incident of the resignation should not be allowed to renege in the performance of such commitment.”

    No. It is only right, legally and ethically, to have the 30 days notice before you stop working for your current employer. Unless you are talking of a life and death situation, your employer can hold you liable for damages.

Would I still be liable to any damages? I wrote my resignation this oct11. And i wish to have my last day this oct13

    Vivian-HR Reply:

    Do you really want to go? Or nadidis-appoint ka lang kasi wala ka pang regularization letter? Kasi if your probationary contract (presumably 6 months) has expired and you have reported for work for 6 months and 1 day sa company na yan, you are automatically regular na. You don’t really need the letter.

    As mentioned above: “An employee who voluntarily resigns from his work is not entitled to separation pay. There is no provision in the Labor Code which grants separation pay to voluntarily resigning employees.” Since nagresign sya voluntary, there is no separation pay unless may union kayo or CBA, or may policy company nyo na may bayad ang nagresign. Dapat may 13th month sya na prorated.

  3. I filed my resignation effective aug 25 and was approved by my immediate supervisor the same day, i expressed that i intended to go on a 10 day mandatory/terminal leave from aug10-23 to which my supervisor and area office agreed on it. On my last day prior to mandatory leave, i was advised that the area head has authority to deny my mandatory leave because i don’t have replacement yet.. My concern is that, i informed them beforehand and had plans already for my mandatory leave. My mandatory leave has my supervisor’s approval already. I asked our HR if the area head can still take the approval back.according to HR, the area head may no longer do that. My question is, is this true? Also, can they hold my clearance if i insist on my manfatory leave? Advised them beforehand and i feel i am being bullied by my area head. He was supposed to give me an exit interview but he did not even talk to me. Made me feel im a ‘good riddance’ by letting me know at i have a replacement right away. And when it was my last day, sent words that he will not approve of my mandatory leave application. Please help me cause i don’t know who else to go to.. It is very obvious to me that the area head is only out to make my remaining days in the office as miserable as possible.

  7. Just want to ask po.
    I rendered my resignation letter to my previous employer with immediate effect for only 6 days. Knowing my boss who does’nt want to pay 1 more month salary to the employees who is resigning, that’s why I only put 6 days on it. But sales commission and 13th month salary was put on hold by the HR dept because I did not rendered the 1 month provision on the resignation letter.
    Question:
    May habol pa ba ako sa makukuha ko? Sabi ng HR wala na akong makukuha at the same time babayaran ko pa yung 1 month na hindi ko pinasok dahil nga 6 days lang ang nilagay ko sa resignation letter ko.
    I dont think na may damages din ako dahil di naman sila nag hire ng kapalit ko.

    Please advise po.

  31. Query lang po sir/maam. One of our employee filed an immediate resignation thus violating the 30 day notice minimum provided by the labor code. So what our admin manager did is to have his pay for 30 days deducted from her back pay claim. Is this legal? There is no company policy regarding the matter and its not also written in the contract of employment.

    [Reply]

    Regem Reply:

    Your company cannot deduct earned salary from the resigning employee’s last pay. That is tantamount to unlawful withholding of wages.

    If the employee failed to give the required 30-day notice, the company may hold the employee liable for damages. However, the amount of damages is something to be determined in a proper proceeding (e.g., action for damages). It is not for the employer alone to decide on this.

    [Reply]

  32. HI! What about this scenario.. an employee is currently on maternity leave. She is supposed to be back on the 1st of December. But then she submitted a resignation letter dated November 1. and counting 30 days her the effectivity of the resignation is dec.1.

    Management did not accept it on the basis that she is still mandated to render the 30-day notification period and the count should start immediately after she returns to work from her maternity benefit.

    Is this correct?

  36. I resigned from my company and follow the 30-day notice due to the following reasons:
    1. Serious insult by the employer or his representative on the honor and person of the employee;
    2. Inhuman and unbearable treatment accorded the employee by the employer or his representative;
    Also the vice president threatened to terminate me, that’s why it triggered me to resign from the company. As far as I’m concern, I didn’t violate any company rules and I’ve been honest and concern for their company. It all started when the vice president heard some malicious gossips from his driver and believed him without hearing my side anymore. My question is this: “Am I entitled to receive any separation pay from them due to the emotional damage they caused to me?”
    By the way, my boss is a Korean national.

  41. Good day po!

    hingi lang po ako ng advice sa situation ko. I follow the company policy of 30 days notice if you will resign. During this 30 days period wala silang action na humanap ng kapalit ko, nag assign sila ng isang office-mate ko na mag OIC pansamantala para i turn-over ko lahat ng files ko ang unfinished works ko sa kanya, but ginawa nila ito last 3 days ko nalang sa work. meaning late na sila umaksyon. so ngayon wala na ko sa company they are demanding na hindi raw nila ako i-ke-clear at hindi nila ibibigay ang 13th month pay ko kung hindi ako bumalik at iayos ang pag turn-over ko at turuan ko daw ung bagong pumalit sakin. My question is tama po ba itong demand nila sa akin? meron po bang batas na may power silang i hold ang 13th month pay ko and other benefits? Sa ngayon po wala na ko sa company ang dami nilang ginawang report na di umano ay mga trabahong hindi ko raw ginawa kaya di nila ibibigay ang benefits ko. Am I still liable to do what they want? please help me po.. thank you and more power..

    Illegal ang pagwi-withhold ng 13th month pay at ibang benefits mo. Walang batas na nagpapahintulot nito. Maaring paraan lang nila ito para pilitin kang bumalik sa kumpanya, o di kaya ay para makaiwas sa pagbabayad ng tamang benepisyo.

    Ang pagbibigay ang 30-day prior notice ay isang legal na paraan para putulin ng empleyado ang kanyang relasyon sa kumpanya. Ang pagre-resign ay hindi maaring gawing dahilan para hindi ibigay ang tamang benepisyo sa empleyado.

  42. Hi! Napasabe ko verbally sa immediate supervisor ko nung last September pa na aalis na ko sabi niya sa Nov. lang daw ako magpasa ng resignation which I did just 2 weeks ago. Sabi ko sa letter ang last day ko ay sa Dec. 22.
    May liability ba ko dun since nasabi ko dun sa isa kong ka work na hintayin ko yung naka maternity leave naming ka work bago ko umalis? I really want to resign na. I’ve been working here for just 1.2 years and fresh grad ako nung pumasok ako dito. I have a feeling na pag hindi ako nagresign nayon never na ko makaalis.

  43. I am about to file my resignation on December 15th. Since I have been required by my boss to render 30 days for proper turnover, my separation from the company will take effect on January 15th next year.

    However, I received a notice from HR very recently informing me that my application for Compensatory Time Off (CTO) from Magna Carta for Women (I underwent a surgical operation) has been approved, and I am entitled for 30-days CTO. Can I use my CTO as rendering days for my supposed resignation?

  45. magandang araw po! ang pamangkin ko po ay nagta trabaho sa isang company for more than 2 years. he is only being paid 200 pesos daily at minsan ho ang shift niya ay 3-11 p.m. minsan ho sumosobra pa ang oras niya dito. wala po siyang pinirmahang kontrata, wala siyang file 201 at binabawasan siya ng SSS contributions pero di niya alam kung inere remit ito dahil walang payroll slip na ibinibigay sa kanya. i know na mandatory din po ang PAG IBIG a Philhealth pero wala po sila non. di rin sila binibigyan ng 13th month pay at wala silang 5 days leave wherein entitled siya dahil they are more than 10 employees. Oct. 28 at 29 po ay nakapag absent siya without leave. sinabihan siya na gumawa ng boss niya ng gumawa ng resignation letter. pero sabi ko po sa pamangkin ko wag niyang gawin dahil wala naman silang contract or rules and policies about it. ang ginawa po nila ngayon ay hinihingan nila ng explanation letter ang pamangkin ko about those absences at inipit ang kanyang sweldo ng mahigit isang buwan na pero patuloy pa rin nilang pinapapasok. so i advised him to file an irrevocable resignation letter effective immediately due to financial turmoil. in the subject resignation letter there is a request for the release of his 13th month pay at the rate according to National Wages Productivity Commission, his unpaid salary plus the overtime pay and night differential as stated in DOLE labor code Book 3 Art. 86, 87, 94, 103, 104 and 105, a certificate of employment from the start and end of his employment and also the copies of SSS R-3 (collection list) which show his contribution under the company. tama po ba ang ginawa namin? can we file a complaint against them sa SSS at DOLE in na di nila ito ibigay; likewise, sa PAG-IBIG at Philhealth? thank you and GOD bless po!

  46. Good Day!

    I am working in a contact center. I submitted my first resignation letter on 13 November 2012(with effectivity date on 14 December 2012) which was approved by my immediate supervisor. I talked with my deputy manager and was fine with my intention to resign. My immediate supervisor asked me to edit my resignation letter, so I submitted my 2nd resignation on 19 November 2012 (with effectivity date on 19 December 2012).

    My immediate supervisor approached me on the 5 december 2012 asking me to extend my resignation up until the month of January 2013. I said ‘no, i don’t want to.’

    What is my position here, can I continue my 2nd resignation letter and end on 19 December or what?

    Please help me! I dont want to work with them anymore. I am working student and it is just so hard to work with them since I feel so stressed and not into that work anymore. Please help!

    In addition, my immediate supervisor used aggressive words when we were talking about the matter. I told him that i will think of it within 24 hours for any possible option, then he just said “Tanga hindi ka boss para magbigay ng option.”

    When I am back home from school and from work, i just cried because i believe that I showed my intent of resignation in a proper way. I just wonder as to why they are asking me for extension which will not show a 30 days notice under Labor Law and wherefore I see not right and not under due process.

  55. Hi! I just want to ask re my situation:

    I resigned 18 Dec 2012, was triggered by unbearable treatment from my superior, also I always feel insulted.
    My email regarding my resignation was accepted by the head of the company on the same day (but was also emailed to my superior but didnt even replied).
    I have a heart disease and doctor advised me to avoid stress also. Due to her unbearable treatment, it caused me emotional stress and was brought to e.r.
    My question is: is it allowable by the law, for me NOT to serve the 30 day endorsement since im very sure that if my boss and I crossed paths, there would be commotion and might cause me health problems, and might affect my cardio problem? Is it ok just to endorse my work for a day or two, and after that, can I file a terminal leave (even without pay)?

    Your reply is so much needed and appreciated. Thank you in advance! Merry Christmas!

    I have an employee who voluntarily submitted his resignation letter. He had served the company for 10 years. I would like to ask if he is entitled to a long service pay? or any other benefits at that? I have looked up the Labor Code of the Philippines and I did not find any benefits for this type of case. But just to be sure, I would like an expert opinion.

  62. need a help….i resigned in a rural bank effective dec. 15, 2012. i received my 13th month pay on the first week of december and i was shocked because it was not in full amount, deducted equavalent to 15 days(16-31). is it legal that my 13th pay was deducted coz i’ll be working til dec. 15? and during our christmas party last dec. 15, 2012 our company’s president announced that she will be giving our 14th month pay on january first week, and the day came releasing of the said bonus, i was shocked again that i was not included in the list, i asked the cashier of the rural bank and our bookkeeper if i am included, sadly i was not. is it right and legal that i am not included in that bonus? the bonus is for the year 2012, 14th month bonus of the 2012. is it just?

    [Reply]

    JUSTICE GUY Reply:

    Since the schedule of giving 13th month is ahead on your schedule of the effectivity of your resignation the you are entitled for the full 13th month pay and it is companies prerogative to give it in full hence it will be against the Labor Code. the 14th pay will be optional to them. since it is only a company’s own way of thanking their employees so the 14th month pay and other year end benefits will depend on their decision. on labor code only the 13th month pay is obligatory for those who are qualified.

    Sir, before i ask my queries here’s the scenario: i started working with this institution Oct 2010 as part-time bookkeeper without signing any contract, receiving a fix monthly fee. Last Dec. 13, 2012 the Exec Director made me sign a contract on a three days work a week or 20 hrs/week. The contract I signed was for Dec. 1-31, 2012. For your info, Dec. 17-28 was the forced leave of the company EXCEPT daw for contractuals.
    Last January 15 2013 i did not receive my Bookkeeper’s fee for the period Jan 1-15,2013 for the reason of non-working from Dec. 17-28. Just to get my fee for Jan. 15 i made a letter requesting to offset the Dec 17-28 on Feb. 11-22 the Audit Season in which i am required to stay there the whole day for 10 days.
    Now my questions are: Am I entitled to vacation/sick leave? how many days in a year? Is it legal that they did not pay me for Jan. 15? What are other benefits that i can avail? Can you please state in your reply the labor code articles involving my queries? I have already prepared a letter to DOLE for this problem but i have know first the legality of the above scenario. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Hi sir, I have two queries:
    1)Initially, I have signed a 3-month contract with a company, before the contract ends, I filed a resignation but they refused to accept the resignation and they opted to end the contract early instead. my last day of work with them was January 10, 2013. Is there a provision in the Labor Code that says exactly the maximum time of releasing the last pay? How long should I wait before they release my last pay?
    2) I have a friend also whose contract has ended more than two months ago. he has not received his last pay yet & was told by the company it will take 4 months before he gets his final pay. This is because his ATM has been blocked for some reason. Is that even legal? he wanted to send an email to the company to follow up the his last pay but the company refused to give himtheir email address.

    Please sir, I need your advise on this matter. I believe we deserve to get what we have worked for.
    Thank you very much.

  77. When I started working here in my office. There are those previous employees that have reached 10 years of service that are paid their early retirement. However there is no written or employment contract for that said early retirement issues here. There is aloso an instance where one bar manager who reached only 7 years stay here were paid 10 years early retirement for their reason that her position is high knowing that they terminated that bar manager! But still they gave that early retirement. The reason why until now I am working here is because I also wanted to get my early retirement here. I will reach my 10 years this coming March 2013 but I’ve heard that the “10 YEARS EARLY RETIREMENT” here is now deactivated, meaning they will not give us anymore the early retirement. Do I have the right to demand them if ever they will not pay me for early retirement? thanks so much

  82. Voluntary Resignation
    Resignation is defined as the voluntary act of an employee who finds himself in a situation where he believes that personal reasons cannot be sacrificed in favor of the exigency of the service and he has no other choice but to disassociate himself from his employment. (Virgen Shipping Corp. vs. Barraquio, G.R. No. 178127, April 16, 2009 citing Valdez vs. NLRC.)
    The key is that resignation must be a “voluntary act”, and that the employee must have knowingly and voluntarily dissociate himself from his employment for his own personal reasons. It does not cover cases where the employee is forced to resign with the use of threats, intimidation, coercion or manipulation, or where resignation is imposed as a penalty for an offense.
    The common practice of allowing an employee to resign, instead of terminating him for just cause so as not to smear his employment record, also fall under the category of voluntary resignation. (See J Marketing Corp. vs. Taran, G.R. No. 163924, June 28, 2009).
    Resignation Notice
    The Labor Code requires the employee to give an advance notice to the employer of his intention to resign. The notice of resignation must be in writing and must be served to the employer at least one month prior to the effective date of his resignation.
    Resignation notice usually takes the form of a letter (commonly called “resignation letter”) addressed to the employer, expressing the employee’s intention to terminate his employment. It must state the date when resignation is to take effect because of the 30-day notice requirement under the law. It may also contain the reason or justification of the employee for filing his resignation, although legally, this is not important. The employee may resign for whatever reason, or even for no reason at all. Thus, in legal parlance, voluntary resignation is also called “termination by employee without just cause.”
    Resignation letter normally contains explicit words expressing employee’s intention to terminate his employment. However, lack of explicit words stating the employees intention to resign is deemed not crucial, as long as the employees intention to resign can be deduced from letter itself. In one case, the Supreme Court held that a memorandum written by the employee containing his deep resentment towards his superior juridically constituted a letter of resignation. Even if the employee did not expressly indicate his intention to resign (neither of the words “resign” or “resignation” was mentioned), the resentful and sarcastic tone of the memorandum was held to be sufficiently indicative of such intention.
    Effect of Failure to Tender Resignation Notice
    If the employee fails to give the employer one month advance notice of his intention to resign, he may be held liable for damages.
    Instances when Notice of Resignation is Not Required
    The employee may resign even without serving any notice on the employer for any of the following reasons:
    Serious insult by the employer or his representative on the honor and person of the employee;
    Inhuman and unbearable treatment accorded the employee by the employer or his representative;
    Commission of a crime or offense by the employer or his representative against the person of the employee or any of the immediate members of his family; and
    Other causes analogous to any of the foregoing.
    Resignation under any of the instance enumerated above is also called “termination by employee with just cause.”

  85. I just want to ask if it’s legal not to make a tax refund to an employee who did not render 30 days notice prior to his resignation and which resignation was just emailed and effective immediately?

    Said employee resigned Jan 17, 2013 and today (Mar 6, 2013), he texted if he can get half of his tax refund (from 2012) since half of it was already given on Jan 15 payday.

    When replied that he can’t get it ‘coz he did not serve 30 days notice, he said that he would file a complaint to NLRC. And that he had already advised us already that he would resign unless he can get a regular status in the company (he signed a 1-year contract and asked for a regular status after his 6 mos).

    Does the employee have the right to file a complaint if tax refund would not be given? Is this not a form of harassment? Can the employer file against the employee for abandonment of work?

    General rule, kapag nagresign ang isang empleyado hindi siya entitled sa separation pay. Lahat lang ng unpaid earned salary at benefits ang maari niyang makuha. Kung ang tinutukoy mo sa “backpay” ay ang “unpaid earned salary at benefits” mo, maari mo pa rin itong makuha.

    [Reply]

    admin Reply:

    Mas makabubuting daanin mo nalang sa pakiusap o negotiation ang iyong hiling na paikliin ang effectivity ng iyong resignation. Tama ang iyong sales manager na ayon sa Labor Code, 30 days ang required notice. Dahil may karapatan ang employer na humingi ng tamang notice, dapat maging bukas ka na pahabain ang effectivity ng iyong resignation kung sakaling hindi agad makakuha ang employer ng isang qualified na kapalit para sa iyo.

    admin Reply:

    Habang hindi pa tinatanggap at inaaprubahan (acceptance and approval) ang resignation letter, nananatili itong isang “offer” lamang. Maari mo itong pa rin itong i-withdraw ano mang oras (bago ang acceptance). Ang withdrawal ay maaring mong gawin kahit walang pahintulot ng employer o management.

    Samantala, kung natanggap na ang resignation (accepted and approved), ang withdrawal ay nangangailangan na ng pahintulot o approval ng employer. Hindi mo ito maaring i-withdraw mag-isa (o unilaterally).

    Kung ang resignation ay ginawa sa pamamagitan ng isang “resignation letter”, katulad ng sa iyo, mas makabubuting i-withdraw mo ito sa pamamagitan din ng isang sulat (letter of withdrawal of resignation).

    I resigned effective immediately because I’m being attacked personally by my supervisor. Few days after I received in a mail 2 return to work notices. The notices were dated March 19 and March 22 which both delivered on March 23, Saturday. I didn’t ring the HR because the department is closed. Came March 27 came a final notice that I’m terminated. My office mate resigned less than a month before I did and she didn’t render a 30-day notice but she didn’t receive a return to work notice nor a dismissal. I fear that I’m being singled out because of the personal attack on me and the supervisor is friends with the HR. What are my legal protections on this case?

    An employee resigned on March 19 and took its effectivity on the day itself, due to some problem in his work. Hindi cya maayos mag work and hindi naman cya na evaluate ng Immediate supervisor niya. He started Jan 23, 2013 and filed a resignation on March 19 and tinanggap ng mga boss namin. On the day itself nag took effect ang resignation niya. Now he is asking for a prorated 13th month pay, and he is asking for a C.O.E. The only worry right now is that maybe he will use the documents for LAbor issue knowing that the company is not registered in SSS, Philhelath and HDMF. My question is does the employer will need to pay for the 13th month pro rated pa rin ba? how about a C.O.E., does the emploer obliged to issue one knowing na hindi naman maayos ang work niya.

    Nagresign po ako sa company na pinapasukan ko dhil na rin sa sinasabi ng admin head namin wla naman akong natatapos o nagagawang report, kahit ang totoo ay nagpapasa ako sa consultant namin, nadedelay minsan dahil na rin sa kakulangan ng dokumento at computer na magagamit. Nang araw na kinausap ako ng admin head, kinuha ng aking kasama ang iba kong trabaho dahil aalis na raw ako. Paglipas ng isang araw saka ako nag resign dhil na rin sa pagkuha ng iba ko pang trabaho khit nandun p ko. Tinanong ko ang hr head nmin kung susunod b ako sa 30 days notice ay mbibigyan ba ako ng clearance, di daw nya kAyang sagutin, at kung may assurance b na hindi ako magkaronng memo pagwalang nagawang report sa loob ng 30 araw. Kaya minarapat ko n lamang umalis Ng araw na iyon. Ang problema hinold nila ang kalahati ng sweldo ko ng mar15 at buo ng mar30.

    JUSTICE GUY Reply:

    Perz, basing on your statement, you should not resign because it will only waive your right for the separation since they are selling the company. In the Labor Code, once resigned ang employee it is “voluntary” so you cannot receive anything from them and any entities na e-bebenta na “shall” settle all their liabilities to their employees. All employees must be well compensated since you will become part of the price that they are selling to their company’s buyer. Sasaluhin kasi ng bibili ng company nyo ang lahat ng liabilities, it means they will have enough amount to give what is due to you and to all employees na hindi na e-a’assume ng new management. but the better would be, you must re-apply to the new management in-case they are giving you this option, basta just be assure that it would not waive your beyond 4years in service.

    Kung talagang wala kang kasalanan, hindi makatarungan na tanggalin ka sa trabaho o di kaya ay piliting magresign. Higit pa, may kasalanan man o wala, kailangang dumaan sa tamang proseso ang pagtatanggal ng empleyado. Ibig sabihin, kailingang mabigyan ng pagkakataon ang empleyado na magpaliwanag at mapasinungalingan ang bintang laban sa kanya. Maari mong idulog ang kaso mo sa National Labor Relations Commission.

  133. Good Aftie!
    Ask ko lang po,nag change po kasi kami ng company name and during discussion po with one of the owners, mas pinili daw po nilang icontinue yung service ng bawat isa sa amin.Inabsorbed po nila kaming lahat and wala pong changes sa tenure and everything. Wala rin pong changes sa top management except pumasok na po yung anak ng chairman. Ano po ba ang batas natin pagdating sa mga ganung bagay? and isa pa po, i’d been in the company po for almost 10yrs, and 2 years pong under agency working for them. Alam ko po na pag nagresign po ako, wala po akong makukuha and kahit magtagal pa po ako, wala pa rin po dahil wala nman pong program ang office para sa mga ganun. Ano po ba ang end of service gratuity? sabi po kasi ng friend ko, though wala pong program for early retirement, meron pa din daw po dapat makukuha thru that end of service gratuity nga po. Hope to hear from you po. thanks!

    Not all companies offer end of service gratuity. So if your planning to resign, check first your employment contract or existing CBA. If nothing is stated there regarding gratuity, chances are, you won’t get anything if you resign.

    May mga pagkakataon na ipinapahintulot ng batas na magresign ang isang empleyado kahit walang proper notice. Isa dyan ay kung ang dahilan ng pagreresign ng empleyado ay ang pambabastos ng employer sa kanya.

    Bawal na hindi ka bayaran ng employer mo ng iyong last pay. Maari mong makuha ang iyong last pay sa pamamagitan ng pagpa-file ng money claims sa NLRC (National Labor Relations Commission).

    Yes, entitled ka sa 13th month pay basta pumasok ka ng at least 30 days for that particular year. Basis of computation would be your gross income from January 1 to June 30, 2013 divided by 12 (prorated).

She was insisting also that I need to report every Saturday for my turnover. I value my commitment with my new employer so I am planning to join them on Aug. 5.

    Sa Labor Code, walang separation pay o anumang benefit ang empleyado na nag resign.

    Gayunman, entitled siya sa anumang benefit na nakasaad sa Collective Bargaining Agreement (kung may union sila) o di kaya ay sa employment contract o anumang agreement ng employer at employee. Mabuting basahin ang mga ito kung may nakasaad na benepisyo para sa empleyadong nagresign matapos ang mahabang serbisyo.

    i had been teaching in a private school for eight years. i had no plan of leaving the school but some circumstances made me decide to. like, i do everything for the good of the school but the new administrators don’t notice.i’m not saying that they should notice but they don’t give me the treatment i deserve. example, i am the school paper adviser, but during the press conference, i was not the one who chose the student participants and they sent another teacher instead of me. Reason, i joined the seminar on coaching and officiating which i insisted on joining. But my reason was, i was the one in charge of the sports also and i wanted to know the new things about the games i am in charge of. Another, the parish priest insulted me when i informed him that ill give the training on weekend which i talked with the principal. Another, i was reprimanded by my school head for not joining an association in the locality which an individual organized, but it is not related to my work. These are but few reasons why after 8 long years, i decided to leave. Am i not entitled for a separation pay? Or any incentive..i don’t know the term. Thank you

Last salary po na nakuha ko ay un salary ng July 31 (cut off july 10-25). The rest nung salary ko po ay naka hold na po at sabi sa last pay ko na lang daw po makukuha. Nag email na po kasi ako sa HR person na nagbigay ng acceptance nun resignation letter ko 2 weeks ago asking about it pero wala po ako na rereceive na response. I tried contacting my ex-colleague to check un status ng clearance ko na dapat ay cleared na, ay open status pa din po at ang unang approval ay manggagaling dun sa person na inemail ko po. I would like to know ano po ang dapat ko gawin kasi kelangan po un money para paayos ang bahay namin na nasira ni bagyong maring.

  189. Good day! Ask ko lang po my situation, I immediately resigned from my company, under ako ng agency/ contractor. I was decertified in the company, where we support. I need to take the exam again to recertify. Hindi na ako nag take ng exam, nag immediate resign na lang ako. Ibinalik ko lahat ng mga issue sa akin para ma cleared ako. Hindi ako binibigyan ng agency ng COE dahil hindi pa daw ako cleared sa pinag deployan sa aking company. mahahabol ko bang COE ko?

  191. Good day! I was separated from the company I’ve worked before on March. I did not submit any resignation letter, I was not even terminated because I had a good performance. I just informed my immediate sup thru a text message that I can no longer come back to work bec. my daughter got really sick and was admitted to the hospital, prior to that, I incurred absences bec I took care of my two daughters since we don’t have a nanny and the person who took charge of looking after them had some issues as well with his family members who got ill. I didn’t even have time to rest since my work sked is on a garveyard shift and during daytime I look after my daughters. My immediate sup accepted it, he even said that my daughters need me. I processed my clearance around June I think, until now I haven’t heard any updates from them yet regarding my last pay and other docs. Said that there’s an issue regarding my date of separation that why they couldn’t compute my last pay. But for how long would they give that reason. Everytime I visit the office they would keep on telling the same thing that it’s on the process, they’re doing follow ups. I need my COE and ITR to submit to the agency I’m under. Please advise. Thanks.

    we have a messenger/janitor who is on Sick Leave since January 1, 2013, due to stroke. Until now di pa sya pumapasok and we were advised na extend daw sya ng SL to Dec. 31, 2013 meaning 1 year na po sya nakaleave. Since 1 lang po sya na messenger namin, hirap na po kami sa mga office errands pero ayaw po niya magresign. Can we request him to file his voluntary resignation or is it a ground for termination? Yung pong job description niya maybe hazard sa health niya if ever bumalik sya. Please advise us na hindi naman maging liable ang employer. Thank you po.

    Magdala ka ng ibang katibayan ng iyong pagtatrabaho, gaya ang payslip. Maari ka ring dumulog sa National Labor Relations Commission at magsampa ng kaukulang reklamo laban sa employer mo.
    Tingnan mo rin kung naireport at nabayaran ang contribution mo sa SSS ng dati mong employer. Kung wala, maari mo rin itong ireklamo sa SSS.

    You can file a monetary claim against your previous employer before the National Labor Relations Commission. Withholding of wages is expressly prohibited under the Labor Code. An employer violating this prohibition is liable to pay moral damages and attorney’s fees, in addition to the amount of the monetary claim.

    Sana po ma-replyan nyo tong tanog ko. I,m 4 months pregnant. Pinagreresign ako ng company ko dahil hindi na daw ako effective magwork. Pero bago mangyari yun, nagsuggest sila na magwork from home ako. Naging maselan kc ang pagbubuntis ko during first trimester. Ayoko naman magresign kya kaht work from home pumyag ako. Basta may email and phone access.
    On my 3rd month of pregnancy, they emailed me na hindi effective ang pagwork from home ko kaya mas mabuti na daw na magresign ako. Effective oct 30. Pero dahil sa biglaang desisyon nilng yun, thru phone kinausap ako. At dahil sa di magandang balitang ng araw na yun, nahirapan ako huminga habang umiiyak, naririnig yun ng HR namin kaya nagalala din sya. Kinabukasan ayon sa Gen. manager namin, payag na daw sila na dec. 30 yung last day ko. At hindi na daw ako masyadong required magwork. Pero as days passes nanghihigi ako ng trabaho peo hindi nila ko pinapansin, they igore my emails. But they keep on doing follow up with my resignation. Pero hindi ako nagpapasa until now. Dapat ba bigyan nila ko ng separation pay? Please help. Thank you

But before resigning, I tried to inform my supervisor and my manager about how I feel. Dahil parang wala nman silang hakbang na ginagawa so I decided to resign. I resigned Aug. 19, 2013 at sabi 60 days bgo dw makuha yung last pay pero hanggang ngayon paasa sila nang paasa. Im tired of doing a ff-up nakaka-frustrate na rin. I’m planning to file a complaint, do I have the chance of winning this case?

  248. If an employee resign because of lower salary is he has a right to demand for separation pay?

    [Reply]

  249. I have voluntarily resigned from my position from a representative office, however, my years of service has been carried over from a previous entity of the same company. It just changed its nature of business. My letter of appointment which I signed states that all compensation and benefits from the ceased company will be carried over to the representative office. Part of the benefit is getting separation pay from resignation equivalent to 50% of the retirement benefit multiplied by the number of years of service of which I have served more than 10 years. I have a copy of the document which I told the company I want to claim that right but I was told that the retirement fund no longer exists because the funding manager does not want to invest on the employees less than 5 pax. Cited article 100 on the non-diminution of benefits to the HR. In this case, do I have a strong case to claim the benefit which should not have ceased in the first place? Am told it was discussed with me but I do not recall any conversation with the company on this issue of the benefit cessation and have not signed any document accepting it.

  252. Good Evening! I recently signed contract with my employer with 18mos holding period. Nagsign po ako kasi wala nman pong pinakitang hindi maganda yung company. But recently my immediate superior and I had an argument and it really affects our working relationship. I don’t feel like working with her na po anymore kasi i can’t respect her na. Ang problem ko po,sa 18mos holding period, pag nag breach ako ng contract, i have to pay them 3x ng salary ko. Wala naman po akong ganung pera and feeling ko magiging unfair din naman po ako sa company kung hindi ko na kayang maibigay yung mga expectations nila. Ano po ang pwede kong gawin? Hope to hear from you.

    Hi Jhing, according sa ating batas, at least 30 days. But the management can request you to extend and its up to you to allow it kase basically, 30-day notice is really enough. Ang maganda sana is to tell them you cannot extend anymore in a respectful manner kase employer parin yan. Ang kaso mo, hindi ka na yata nag paalam na hindi ka papasok after 3-days? kase they may tag you AWOL. Parang revenge na iyan sa part ng employer.

    The best thing to do, if you have the “receiving copy” of your resignation then you can file a case sa DOLE against them. that’s why impt ang receiving copy.

  256. The company that I had been working on reduced our working days from a month to 15 days, thus reducing our salary to half. This scheme last for almost a year. After we finished the 6th month, the management let us sign an agreement that if we decided to resign covering the period from August 2013 to January 2014 we will receive 7.5 days times the year of our service. Most of co-workers filed their resignation and they received their separation pay. The problem arises when me and 3 of my other co-worker filed our resignation, they don’t want to pay our separation as stated in that agreement. When we asked them why, they told us that it is because we are chosen to be retained in the company. Before we filed our resignation we ask them if its possible that we might be included in the retrench personnel. They refuse so we don’t have a choice but to file our resignation. And aside from we were also inform that if we resign when the regular duty for skeleton force starts, we will not get any separation pay.I don’t think they have the right to force us to stay in the company specially that it is not in operation. Can we still get the amount stated in that agreement?

    If the giving separation pay to an employee who voluntarily resigns has ripened into a company practice, it may no longer be withdrawn without the consent/approval of the employees. It was, I can only guess, the reason why the company let the employees sign the waiver of benefits. In your case, since you did not sign, your not bound by it.

I signed a contract with this company as probationary for 5 months from july 5 to december 5 after this period i rendered a resignation letter and rendered 60 days noticed effective February 4,2014 but our HR told me that i cant leave the company because of the training bond. My reason for leaving the company is my fiance want me to stop working and start to focused on the processing of my visa and start to study for my language exam since that is needed to get my visa too…were also planning to get married this year so i need to do a lot of stuff and if i will not stop working i cant start anything since our working schedule is Monday to Saturday 9am-6pm. My question is if i stop working til feb 4 do the company can sue me on this?with regards with the training bond what can u advice me on this?.Your reply is highly appreciated thank you…

  264. Hi Sir/Ma’am
    Good day
    I’m hoping anyone who would read this could help me understand more about the incident at my work.
    I used to work at SAVEMORE-Cebu Branch (Sanford Marketing Corporation) as a bagger. And then me and some of my co-workers got kicked out of the Company because we violated one of their rules which is accepting TIPS from customers. At first we were called to see our SUPERVISOR immediately, and then we were asked if did we take TIPS from the customers. And so me and 3 of my co-workers (which happens to be my 3 closest friends in work) were so shocked and was unable to think fast so we all replied honestly and said YES! (though we should have lied because they dont have an evidence)… anyways, now my real point is that we were told that the penalty for our violation is TERMINATION which is we’re aware of but our supervisor/head gave us a choice whether we voluntarily resign or be terminated and get a BAD RECORD from the work!! If we do voluntary resignation, we won’t get a BAD RECORD from our work but each one of us must make a resignation letter. So we voluntarily resign. After that they let us sign a paper with our contact number in it so they could contact us about our SEPARATION PAY, yes! they told us about our SEPARATION PAY including me even though I worked there for about 1 month and 13 days. Its even got a date in the paper when to expect our SEPARATION PAY would be available. In my case its January 5, 2014 but its already January 25 now, I’ve waited for almost 3 months now. I called the company but they keep on saying that our terminal paycheck is not yet been forwarded to their branch. Are they ignoring us?!
    PLEASE HELP :L

    It is a management prerogative to transfer employee when the business needs require. It cannot be challenged, unless there is discrimination or bad faith on the part of the company.
    As to separation pay, the employee who voluntarily resigns is, as a general rule, not entitled to separation pay. However, you may check with the company’s policy/practice since some company do offer some form of benefits to employees who will resign after certain years of service. You may also check if he is qualified to avail of some early retirement package that the company might offer. If all else fail, he can always negotiate for some form of financial assistance.

    Mas makabubuting itanong at linawin mo sa boss mo kung anong benefits ang maari mong makuha kung sakaling ikaw ay magre-resign. Mahalagang gawin mo ito bago ka magresign.

    On strict legal aspect, the employee is only required to give 30 day prior notice. The employer cannot demand more. (Unless your employment contract states a longer period.)

    But looking at the other sides of things, it is best if you can settle the issue by mutual agreement. If you can accommodate a few more days of extension, why not. Maybe, there is a middle ground acceptable to you and your employer. Consider that how you resign can sometimes affect your future employment.

    The employee is required to give at least 30-day notice of his intention to resign, otherwise he/she may be liable for damages. It is the employer’s right to refused the resignation giving shorter notice.
    If the employee decide to proceed with your next employment without giving proper notice, he/she assume the risk of being held liable for damages.
    At any rate, negotiation is your friend here. Try to convince your employer to accept the resignation. If he won’t allow it, then talk to your future employer to give you more time to wrap up your previous employment.

He decided to resign because of that. He’s an old man and every time he comes home after work, it stresses him out. He’s been working with the company for almost 30 years. Would he get a separation pay? Considering that he’s been of service for almost 30 years?

    I suggest that he talk to his employer about it. Some companies do provide some incentives or a sort of separation pay to employees resigning after a certain years of service. Legally, though, there is no separation pay if the employee voluntarily resigns, unless the employment contract or other agreement (e.g. CBA, if there is a union in the company) provides otherwise.

  286. I’ve been doing payroll and in my years of doing this I have observed that in the company I work, most employees who tender their resignation do not give the company the 30-day grace period required despite so many times being told of the so-called 30-day notice. Usually, their resignation letters tell of an “effective immediately” or “effective tomorrow” which, for us, is very annoying as it would also require us a speedy preparation of their exit documents. What do you suggest can the company do to put an end to this practice? He can’t be AWOL to because he has submitted a resignation letter.

    Good afternoon mag 8 months na po akong resign sa dati kong kumpanya pero hanggang ngayon wala sila binibigay na update kung may makukuha ba ako o wala, at tama din po ba na kaltasin nila ang mga training and seminars na pinagaralan namin para sa kumpanya bilang paniguro ay pinamirma pa kami ng kontrata na ikakaltas sa amin ito pag nagresign.

    My friend sent a resignation letter on March 15 effectivity date on March 31. The company said that it should be until April 15. My friend agreed. Even though, the effectivity date of the resignation is on April 15, the HR declared that he still needs to work but the COMPANY WILL NO LONGER GIVE HIM SALARY on March 31st and April 15th. Is it just? What document that would support the claim?

    Hi, I received grave threats from an unknown number and I feel my life is in great danger. I filed immediate resignation to my employer and instead of understanding, he even got mad why I did not log in to work and he even shouted at me BALIW KA BA all throughout the floor, much to my surprise. I was really embarrassed. Is this a ground for me to file a complain against them for this insulting behavior and for taking the threats I was receiving lightly and as if worthless? I have several other complains as well besides this. I badly need your help.

    Magandang gabi po!
    Nag tender na po ako ng resignation letter sa employeer ko 30days before of effective date is May 1,2014 voluntary po ito. Bago po ito last February this year ay nag email po ang manager namin sa lahat ng retail branch nmin at isa na nga kami sa naka address sa email nya na kung sino man daw ang ayaw na sa branch assignment nila ay free umalis(the point to resign). May hindi po kasi magandang nangyayari sa ibang branch namin at hindi nagustohan manager namin, hindi man po kami yun pero kasama kami sa email nya. After one month nag meeting kaming mga store head with our manager nabangit sakin ng isa sa mga boss namin na ililipat ako pero sa malayong branch at dahil dito medyo na disappoint ako. May isang agency ang nag offer sakin to work abroad, nag apply ako sa kanila at natangap naman. And 1stweek of April nag tender na po ako ng resignation at ang reason is to work abroad at na approved naman nila. And may question is may habol po ba ako na mabigyan nila ng separation pay sa kadahilanan sila naman po talga ang nag tulak sakin para mag resign? may kopya po ako ng email ng manager namin last february na sinasabi nga nya dun na kung nais namin umalis ay free kami.
    Pkisagot naman po. At kung ano ang mga hakbang na dapat kung gawin.Maraming Salamat po.

  312. Hi, ask ko lang po..nagresign po kasi sa dati kog company ng Feb 2014. I have a membership in a wellness center and salary deduct yung way of payment nun.
    Nung kunin ko yung backpay, nagulat ako kasi kinaltas dun yung March and April na bayad sa wellness center when Feb pa lang wala na ako sa company. By the way, sabi sa wellness center na yun pag wala ka na sa company, automatic na deactivated na rin yung membership ko don. WHat happened is this April lang nginform yung dati kong company sa wellness center na hindi na ako connected sa company nila.
    Question is, tama bang binawas nila sa backpay ko yung 2mos charge sa wellness center na dapat gang Feb lang dahil gang Feb lang naman ako sa company nila? and late naman nila inasikaso yung mga deactivation ng mga membership ko..

  319. Kindly help me for my case.

    Last 14 MAy 2014 this is the incident happened.

    Allegedly they were telling that I have been neglect of duty therefore they forced me to sign a letter of termination. I was surprised on that time because the grounds has no factual basis for termination. I explained my side and after an hour they just waived the letter of termination.

    When I got back to my computer table in order to continue my work then it happened that they were not providing my password as harass me to get an immediate collection. I do have my back up files so I can continue to collect for the overdue accounts of our clients.

    I was in trauma on that time because of the incident that at any time they will going to terminate me. So as to get seek legal counsel I tried to call the DOLE number but no success. My Boss traced it down (I don’t know how they traced it) I said I was seeking for a legal counsel if my decision is better to stay or not. So in that case, I was in trauma again that my life become disaster If I will continue to stay. as to protect myself the only thing to do is to resign immediately.

    There were also a threat from them that If he will resign and will apply to our competitor that he will going to do something or anything and he could even go to our houses.

    Would you be able to help me, please?

    Thanks.

Kasi according to management di daw mabigyan dahil voluntary resignation daw at kung my susunod pa daw di na sila magbigay .. maari po ba ito sa exception ” where an employee who voluntarily resign is entitled to receive separation pay” or it is sanctioned by established employer practice or policy?” at tama rin ba na 30% lang sa salary ang matanggap na separation?

    An employee who voluntarily resigns from his work is not entitled to separation pay. There is no provision in the Labor Code which grants separation pay to voluntarily resigning employees.

    Separation pay as a rule is paid only in those instances where the severance of employment is due to factors beyond the control of the employee. Thus, in case of retrenchment to prevent losses where the employee is forced to depart from the company due to no fault on his part, separation pay is required by law to be paid to the dismissed employee.

    The case is totally different in case of voluntary resignation where severance of employment is due to employee’s own initiative. The law does not oblige the employer to give separation pay if the initiative to terminate employment comes from employee himself.

    However, by way of exceptions, there are at least two instances where an employee who voluntarily resign is entitled to receive separation pay, as follows:

    When payment of separation pay is stipulated in the employment contract or Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA, for companies with existing bargaining agent or union);
    When it is sanctioned by established employer practice or policy.

    Hi,

    I have a concern regarding my resignation. I am staying with my current company for less than 2 months then I filled a resignation. Is is required to render 30 days notice even if you’re still on a probationary period and you render less than 2 months of stay in the company?

    Your answers will be very much appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi!Admin, Good Evening! Just want to share my situation.
    Last July 22, 2014 nagpasa ako ng resignation sa HR pero ang sabi sa akin ibigay ko muna sa Manager ko. As of today July 25 hindi pa ako kinakausap ng HR tungkol sa resignation na iyon, Kaya ako na mismo ang kumausap at nagtanong ng status. Ang sagot sa akin ay wala pa sa kanila ang resignation ko at kung kailan pirmahan ng manager ko ang resignation saka lang masgsisimula ang counting ng 30 days for resignation effectivity. Pero may nilagay akong effectivity date. Tama po ba ang ginagawa nila? nakakatakot lang mula sa bibig ng employer ko pa nanggaling “kayang-kaya naming gawan ng kaso ang empleyado pero, hindi namin gagawin sa inyo un.” At sa pag tigil ko dito ng mahigit ng ilang taon lahat ng magagaling at mabubuting empleyado na umaalis nagkakaroon ng issue, For example; nakadispalko ng pera, nawalan ng gamit sa opisina. History o kultura na nga ata ito sa company..

    Good day, i just want to ask regarding my separation pay, i work for the company almost 20 years and i tender my resignation which was accepted and with no case. My clearance was already signed and i also received my certificate of employment. my problem is my separation was hold due to a loan from other financial institution.

  374. Good day,

    I was working to recently opened company (last May 2014). SSS, Philhealth and pag – ibig registration was not yet done during that time and deductions has already been made to the employees. Reports of contributions to SSS, Philhealth and Pag-ibig will only be remitted this September 2014. Since its late payment, penalty is charge by the government agencies. I have rendered my resignation last July 2014 and the company is holding my last pay and will deduct the penalties incurred by the company to SSS, Philhealth and pag-ibig. Is this legal? What are my rights as employee? and can i still get my last pay?

    Thank you.

    Ako po ay isang helper sa isang kompanya ng mga koreano dito sa mandaluyong, gusto ko lang po i-report yung company namin kasi hindi po sila nagbabayad ng overtime saka holiday sa aming mga empleyado nila. Tapos kapag holiday po pinapapasok kami pero hndi kami pinapa-time in sa dtr namin, pinapasulat lang kami sa papel para iyon ang magsilbing attendance namin.

    Gusto ko lang din pong itanong kung, may makukuha po ba dapat na back pay kapag tinggal ang isang empleyado sa trabaho? Nais ko rin pong itanong kung tama ba na bigyan ako ng maraming memo upang wala akong matanggap sa aking pagtatrabo ng tatlong taon dahil iyon po ang sabi ng aming HR dahil ayaw nila magbayad?

  380. Good day! Thank you for this post, it somehow helps us to find answers with our concerns. Just want to share our case and hopefully someone can give us advise and suggestions. Me and my boyfriend are working in the same company. Me for four (4) years as IT Support and my boyfriend for two (2) years as a bookkeeper. We’ve just been together a year ago and the company don’t have any policy with regards to “Special” or “Intimate” relationship with the employees. July this year, the Board of Directors decided to create and implement policy of “No Intimate Relationship” at work is allowed. Then, one of us should go within 30 days of notice. Unfortunately, he involuntarily filed a resignation. Is he entitled to receive a Separation Pay? I’ve read in some post that there are five instances for Separation Pay and it includes “In exceptional cases, where separation pay is awarded as a measure of social or compassionate justice. Here, payment of separation pay may be ordered by the court even if the dismissal from service is found to have been for valid or just cause, i.e., even if the employee is found to have been at fault.” Does my boyfriend entitled for that? Thank you very much!

With this I wasn’t able to have my separation pay & a month before I resign I have a commission amounting to 8,000 (already issued a check) which the company decide to hold the said check as my commission with out my knowledge. Nalaman ko na lang po ng Hinold po nila yung checke nung araw na mag rerelease na po sila ng checke to some employees. Dagdag po rito e meron pa po akong mga commission na dapat makuha dahil before pa po ako mag resign e sunod sunod po yung qouta nung mga huling buwan ko sa company.
    Ano po ba ang dapat kung gawin regarding dito? regular employee po ako dun at nag serbisyo sa kompanya ng mahigit dalawang taon. Pero nung nag resign ako at hanggang ngayon e wala po akong natanggap kahit isang centabo…

  385. hi. kindly help me on this. I resigned from my previous employer of 7 years last May 22 2014. I stayed til Jun 30 2014 since there’s no one yet to assume my position. I also reported for all saturdays of July to do the turnover. Now that I am following up for may last pay, my previous boss is asking me to go back their office and settle some pending issues.
    Am I still obliged to settle those pending issues she wanted me to settle, considering that I have given more than the 30 days required turnover period. Is it my fault if there’s no one to assume my position? HOnestly, I don’t want to go back to their office unless I will claim my last pay. Kindly enlighten me on this. I am thinking of filing a complaint to NLRC to expedite release of my last pay.
