How do file a labor case at DOLE?

Posted by on November 14, 2011 4 Comments Category : Career & Employment &General Information Tags : , , ,

My brother got terminated from the job without any legal reason. He says it was company politics because one of the supervisor’s son wanted his position which he has held for almost 5 years now.

Now he wants to file a case in the Department of Labor for illegal dismissal. How should he go about it? The company is a government office. Any input would be of great help. Thanks!

    How was the termination done? First you need to understand the process of which the termination was done. We call it due process where the immediate boss or HR serves a Showcause Memo, goes through a 48 hour waiting period, Administrative hearing then serving the Sanction Memo. Second, you need to understand the basis of the termination. If these two criteria were failed, or at least one, then you may file illegal termination. Just simply go to any DOLE or NLRC office nearest you, report it and a letter will be sent to the company for an arbiter’s meeting.

    Hi would it possible to file a case for Korean restaurant who employed a minor specifically under the age of 17 with no legal consent from the parents. Likewise they did not offer papers to sign since my friend is a trainee there and was also told by the korean owner that they do not follow the holiday pays that came with the holy week and forces there workers to work more than 10 hrs under a minimum wage

    Please let us know how should we go about this

    How can we file a case against our employer regarding our unpaid 13th month pay? under our labor code(PHILIPPINES) section 1..13th month pay should be given to the entitled employee later than 24th of December..but our employer failed to give it to us until now,(January 4,2015) It almost end of the year 2014,still we didn’t receive any amount from our employer and we didn’t hear anything when He will give it to us .Our employer citizenship is Indian-American. And His Store’s named with another person that we didn’t meet ever since we’re employed in this company.(Blue Technology Inc.) It is retail department and we’re selling electronic gadget’s,phone’s & Tablet’s w/o NTC, there are some that has NTC sticker but there are mostly selling GREY UNITS.
    Our other concerns was we are working more than ten hours but they didn’t pay for our overtime and we only have 3 days-off in a month. May I know what are the due process to do a file case against our Employer.?

    I’m Hoping & begging for immediate response regarding this matter..
