1 Unused Leaves with a twist on Wed Feb 01, 2012 4:34 am

hardworkingemployee


Arresto Menor
Summary: Employees are being forced to consume or use ALL their accumulated leaves so that zero(0) are left.

Background:
1.Regular employees of company X are given 20 Time OFFs(T.O.) per year. T.O. can be used as either for sickness or for vacation.
2.It has been documented company policy for the past 7 years to convert a maximum of 15 unused TO's into cash.

Twist:
1.Managers are now requiring/forcing employees to consume the T.O.'s so that zero are left.

Questions/Arguments:
1.By philippine labor law,employees should not be forced to use up to 5 SIL. Can company X force employees to use up ALL their T.O.s?
2. If the answer to first question is "YES".Can company X force employees to use up 5 or 10 or 15?
3. Can we file a complaint case with DOLE on the basis that "it was standard company policy for the past 7 years. There was no formal memo or advisory circulated."?

Thank you in advance.

i don't believe this matter has been settled, and you have the right to question it in DOLE.

IMO, it can be allowed.
