  1. Employer's protection from employees' loss or damages

    Hi, atty. I would like to seek your advise especially regarding the employer's protection if our employee have caused loss/damages in our company. I have read that cash deposits for loss/damage is considered as unauthorized deduction but how about the employer's side? What else can we legally do if such incident will happen? Thank you so much, attorneys. I hope this will reach your end. I am an HR practitioner and I am one of those who are learning from your advises online ❣️

  7. Work Clearance Problem

    Good afternoon. May I know if I am still liable when it comes to my member's incomplete work clearance requirements even if I am no longer working for my previous company? My employer doesn't sign my clearance even if my own clearance requirements are already complete. Their reason is my member's incomplete work clearance requirements. What if my members won't desire completing it? Does it mean it's my fault for being not cleared? Can an employee request for a complete signed copy of the clearance though the backpay is not yet released? Thank you, and hoping for your response. Raquel

  12. Final Pay without Completing Clearance

    With regards to the new policy released by DOLE about Final Pay. What if the employee did not complete his/her clearance due to AWOL and went back to get his final pay? Should we still release his final pay within 30 days after the effectivity date of his resignation even if he did not complete the 30 days? If the policy says that the final pay should be released 30 days after the date of separation, and the employee did not complete his clearance, isn’t it unfair for the employer if we still release the final pay? How much can we deduct the employee if he did not complete the 30 days rendering? Also, lately we issue final pay through bank deposit and the documents should be signed via Docusign. Questions are: can we have them sign the documents online? Can we give the final pay personally thru cheque and hold the said cheque if the resigned/terminated employee did not claim it personally in the office?

  13. What information can a previous employer disclose about a separated employee during employment verification?

    To ensure no provision of the Data Privacy Act is violated, please advise the extent of information that a previous employer may disclose about a separated employee during employment verification or background checks? Is a Letter of Authorization from concerned employee a requirement before an employment verification be entertained? Thanks!

  14. Is it legal to demote an employee?

    This is useful for HR practitioners as to how to process demotion on employee. Is it legal or how do we impose without going into litigation.

  15. Drafting a Company Code of Discipline

    Code of Discipline is a set of rules and regulations with corresponding sanctions or penalties when violated. It is the law that protects the welfare of both the employees and the management similar to the law of the Philippines. We had it drafted, especially the terminable offenses, based on the Labor Code of the Philippines and the criminal offenses. Since it is very important on the good foundation of the company and its employees, employers should srupulously establish the sanctions and it should always be reviewed. What are the things that would guide us on establishing a Code of Discipline both for start-ups and for companies with existing one? I believe this would help a lot on most of the companies.
