Good day po sa lahat, ask po sana ako sa mga may alam sa batas, saan po pwede makiha ng lawyer na hindi mahal maningil kasi need po namin mafile ng case, tinakbo po yung capital namin ni marlon muya, wala na kami pera para makuha ng lawyer . malaki ang natangay nya pera. Ano po kaya ang magandang gawin. Salamat po in advance.

pumunta sa Integrated Bar of the Philippines (para maiba-iba naman, hindi puro si Bikoy).

 

Kung andito ka lang sa Manila, bakasakaling may legal aid program ang law school na malapit sa inyo. I-google na agad kung saan ang malapit na law school.

Ask lang po ng advise .. Would it be safe to send a photo of your work ID or company ID to someone asking a copy to send via email kc "he" is asking me as a beneficiary to receive his retirement and benefits as a liberal army member kc too young pa daw ang son nya 14 years old to deposit the money? He then telling me asap kc his UN lawyer need that id to instruct me what to do next... Is this a Scam? I just want an advise, i am really so busy to become familiar on this matter.

Company owned by Aussie, I had to do OT for 3-4 months, bayad naman ako ng overtime pero hindi ako binayaran ng night differentials as well as proper weekend rates. Last APE before I joined the company I was clear of any diagnosis, netong APE lang nung huli, nakitaan ako PTB and it's positive na meron nga. I'm thinking of filing my resignation narin, just wondering if I file a case against my employer who is a racist actually and generalizes filipino's work ethics kahit na sandmakmak trabaho mo and kahit hindi mo na trabaho, he still thinks wala kang ginagawa, what case would it be and how much would it cost versus how much would I be getting from them.

Note: I believe nakuha ko yung PTB dahil sa mga OT ko, every week there's a day or two na wala akong tulog ni konting minuto.

Sales person po ako sa isang company. Naterminate po ako last april. Last June nakatanggap po ako ng demand letter galing sa company. Sinisingil nila saken yung mga short payments ng customers ko.

Ang tanong ko po, pwede po b nila ako kasuhan dahil sa short payments ng customers? Nireview ko yung employment contract ko at wala nman nakalagay na may liability ako sa mga under payments ng customers ng company. Pero nagtataka lang ako kung bakit pa sila nag issue ng demand letter saken? May company lawyer po sila at siguradong naiconsulta nila yun. Please enlighten me on my situation. Maraming salamat po sa mga sasagot.

Note: I believe nakuha ko yung PTB dahil sa mga OT ko, every week there's a day or two na wala akong tulog ni konting minuto.

1. if I file a case against my employer... what case would it be and how much would it cost versus how much would I be getting from them.

 

Case:

Non-payment of night shift differential (additional 10% of hourly rate for work performed from 10pm - 6am) and non-payment of premium pay (additional 30% of regular pay, for work performed on rest day. in other words, you're supposed to be paid 130% of your salary for work performed on rest days)

 

Cost:

You file this with the National Labor Relations Commission. The Public Attorney's Office has a liaison office at the NLRC, and they help complainants for free. Or you can get your own lawyer (fees vary from lawyer to lawyer). Just compute how much night shift differential and premium pay you were not paid, and that's the sum you're entitled to. Then compare the amount to the cost of a private lawyer.

 

Notes:

1. The fact that your employer is a racist, if the same does not result to discrimination against you in terms of salary or other benefits, is not a ground for a labor case. It may be a ground for a civil case (but the cost of hiring a lawyer vis-a-vis the damages you might be awarded, plus the length of time and work involved might make this an unattractive option. Note also that you will be needing concrete proof of his racism, which might be a bit hard to procure also).

 

2. PTB is caused by a bacteria. While overwork might have led to a weakened immune system, PTB is not DIRECTLY caused by overwork. More, an employer is actually allowed to require employees to work overtime or on rest days when the same is required by the circumstances (as long as he is paid the required overtime and premium pay). In other words, you may have a hard time connecting your PTB to your employer. And even if the same was caused by your overtime, the law says that you go against the Workmen's Compensation Fund (administered by the Employee's Compensation Commission) rather than your employer. If you are covered by SSS, you file for compensation, due to your PTB, with the SSS. Ypou don't file this against your employer.

 

3. If you are a permanent employee, resignation will disqualify you for separation pay ( an employee who resigns is not entitled to separation pay). On the other hand, an employer may terminate an employee due to a disease which is prejudicial to his and his co-workers' health, bu thtey have to pay him separation pay.

Baka naman lumalabas sa records ng company na fully paid na yung customer, pero kulang ang ni-remit mo. In other words, baka akala nila, binulsa mo yung pera.

 

Dahil kung kulang ang bayad ng customer, ANG CUSTOMER DAPAT ANG MAGBABAYAD NUN, hindi ang sales personnel. Sales personnel are not, as a general rule, guarantors of customer's payments.

 

Kung tutoo na kulang ang bayad ng customer (at alam ito ng employer mo ng ni-release ang item), at wala kang inakong responsibildad sa pagbayad nung kulang, wala kang dapat sagutin dun.

 

Kung kulang ang bayad ng customer (at alam ito ng employer mo ng ni-release ang item) pero ginarantiyahan mo na ikaw ang magbabayad kung hindi makababayad ang customer, may sagutin ka.

 

Ngayon, kung kulang ang bayad ng customer at itinago mo ito sa employer mo (pinalabas mo na fully paid na), kung kaya't ni-release ang item dahil akala nila fully paid na, ito ay maaaring estafa o theft at may sagutin ka dito.

 

Kung binayaran ng buo ng customer yung item, pero binulsa mo ang bahagi, pagnanakaw naman yun, at may pananagutan ka rin.

Maraming salamat po sa matiyagang pagpaliwanag atty.
Just to clarify po, yung mga short payments ng customers matagal na po nmen sinisingil sa customers even when I was still connected pa po sa company. Ang sistema po kc, may credit line ang mga customers kaya nirerelease nman po ng company ang items kahit wala pang bayad basta nagdaan na po ito sa proseso ng paggawa ng Sales Order kung saan inaaprubahan po ito ng may ari ng company.

Yung sinisingil po saken ay pinagsama samang short payment ng mga customers. Ang karamihan po sa dahilan ng short payment ng customer is because of COD discount. Where in papasok po sa COD price ang item pag nabayaran ng customer hanggang 7 days maximum. May iba pong customer na magbbayad ng COD price pero nakatawid na sa 7 days (merong nag 8 days 9 and so on..) pag lumagpas po ng 7 days, automatic na itong icocompute ng accounting bilang term price (30days).

May collector nman po kme, hindi po tlaga ako ang nangongollection. Kung may customer man na magbigay saken ng cheke, ito ay nakapangalan po sa company. Sigurado nman po akong walang customer na magssbe sa kanila na nagbayad saken na nakapangalan saken or pay to cash.

Hindi lang po talaga ako makapaniwala na nag issue sila ng demand letter saken na sa akin sinisingil ang mga under payments ng customers gayong hindi nman po ako ang kumuha at nakinabang sa mga produkto.

kung ganyan ang talagang nangyari, lumalabas na wala sila sa tama sa pagsisingil sa iyo.

 

maaari mong sagutin yung sulat at ilahad ng panig mo (pero maganda, abugado rin ang gumawa, at baka may masabi ka pang hindi tama). maaari din namang balewalain mo na lang ang sulat, at hintayin kung ano ang sunod nilang hakbang.

Hi there. Just got two quick questions:

 

1. A company from China have offices here in the Philippines and they are doing the hiring locally. They only hire applicants as Freelance. They are requiring the Freelance to finish a training at a specific date saying that it is mandated by the Chinese government. Is that legal? Because it seems that they are treating the freelance as under the Chinese government which clearly they aren't because they are Filipinos and are residing in the Philippines.

 

2. If a guy is trying to pissed you off by making "parinig". Then if you retaliate by doing the same thing to him until he got pissed and challenged you to a fist fight and without saying anything you punch him in the face. Will you be held liable or him for starting the fight by making parinig? In that situation, is it better to wait for the guy to get physical first then just beat him up after making the first move?

 

Thanks in advance.

1. Is that legal?

 

without knowing the nature of the work they are performing, mahirap magsalita kung legal nga ba ang kunin sila bilang freelancer lamang.

 

2. Will you be held liable or him for starting the fight by making parinig? No. Making "parinig" is not a sufficient reason for punching someone. It will only lessen your criminal liability, but you will still be guilty of a crime (most probably less serious physical injuries)

 

In that situation, is it better to wait for the guy to get physical first then just beat him up after making the first move? If they get physical first, then you beat them up, you will still be liable. Their making the 1st move is actually a valid excuse for DEFENDING YOURSELF, but it does not justify beating them up. Defending yourself is allowed, but beating up a person is no longer defending yourself.

Hi Sir. Thank you for the response. They are hired as freelance online English teachers. They teach English to Chinese students in China. The company has physical offices in the Philippines so I guess they are registered and under the jurisdiction of the Philippine law. However, since they should be under the Philippine law, can they tell the Filipino teachers, "you need to complete this online training on or before this date as MANDATED BY THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT"? Can they use the clause "as mandated by the Chinese government" when the teachers are all working in the Philippines or must obey Philippine law?

Yes. They are teaching to Chinese students in China. While the terms of their employment is governed by Philippine law, what they are going to teach is covered by requirements of Chinese law. Accordingly, their employer may require them to take up training, as mandated by the Chinese government.

 

It is no different with a Filipino worker working in a Filipino factory, producing goods for export to the US. The Filipino worker may be required to produce items that are compliant with American standards, and he cannot refuse to do so, and insist that Philippine standards should be followed, on the ground that the item is being produced here in the Philippines.

 

The important thing is that the free-lancer receive the compensation and benefits guaranteed him under Philippine law. To require him to undertake trainings required by the Chinese government, as long as the content of the training is not illegal, contrary to public policy, morals, and good customs; would not be a violation.

1. question ko is how can i get my tools na hindi n gagamitin dhl ayaw nila i release

 

dalhin mo sa barangay.

 

2. should i file a case against them for non payment since items were delivered and renovation works is almost completed.

 

isama mo sa reklamo mo sa barangay yung di ka binayaran ng tama. kung di kayo magkasundo sa barangay, pwede ka na maghain ng reklamo (ang tanong: magkano ang hinahabol mo, baka kasi maliit lang, pwede mo na dalhin sa Small Claims Court. Kahit walang kontrata, magiging ebidensya ang mga Salaysay ng mga trabahador mo (pagawin mo ng salaysay) tungkol sa ginawang renovation (maging leksyon din sa iyo ito... sa susunod, kailangan may kasulatan, para di ka nahihirapan patunayan ang mga claim mo)
