Hello...

newbie here and found this site to be very informative...hope to have some advices on my concern below...thanks!

I was advised by company employee services that the gas and car maintenance allowance that I have been receiving for the past 9 month since I started was a mistake….

From the very start, I have no idea that this is not included on my benefits. I thought its automatic since I had this parking privilege as an officer and I just started receiving it on my first pay until now. (this is not stated on my contract on the benefits and privileges).

just last week company employee services called me up to inform that such benefits are for higher management levels only and was an audit finding that I had been receiving it.

much bad news is that they wanted me to pay back the total that was given to me from the start which will be deducted to my monthly salary and I need to settle it in less than six months.

my question is; can this be considered a diminution of benefits? do I need to pay back everything in their terms? do I need to suffer for the mistake I didnt commit?

I really needed your advise sir. Alam naman ng lahat na mahirap ang buhay ngayon…tapos pagbabayarin ako sa hindi ko kasalanan. Let me know kng may laban ako pag nag seek ako ng legal actions on my case. Thank you!!

I wish this allowance not to be removed since I been used to receiving it for 9 continuous months already…more I do not want to pay back everyting that I have been receiving... Embarassed Embarassed

your remedy is to file a complaint at nlrc for illegal deduction. hopefully, you will be assigned to a liberal arbiter because the rule i that if you weren't entitled to it, you have to return it.
