Gud am.I am an officer for a BPO company and would like to seek additional legal advise. I was placed on preventive suspension 6 days before my floating status(due to downsizing)took effect. The grounds were fraud, falsification of company records and acts of dishonesty. My concern is, should an employee be called for questioning first to justify if there really is a cause for preventive suspension given the gravity of the alleged offense? In my case, I was never questioned, I was invited to the HR ofc and was immediately served a notice for preventive suspension effective immediately. I was asked to pack my things and leave the premises. When I tried questioning, the only response I got was you are given 5 days to explain in writing. I have already submitted my written explanation and have filed for illegal suspension in NLRC 2 weeks ago. I then received word from HR yesterday that an admin hearing is scheduled and my attendance is required or I waive my right to be heard and non attendance on my part would mean an admission of charges made against me. Do I have the option of not attending the admin hearing on monday since there is already a hearing scheduled by NLRC?
