great thing i saw this link.
hi po, i have a question, i need a legal advise lang po or should i say i would like to verify something lang. regarding bonds in companies, it will only apply should the company invested on the emloyee right? say they sent him abroad for training certification. but if the company provided bond for the employee just to make him stay, for as long as wala naman pa sila nainvest sakanya, the employee can leave and not pay the bond. are you familiar with nlrc daw po? that is the office that my previous hr officer shared that can help those employees. according to her, habulin man ni company si employee bahala sila pero kung wala naman sila nainvest sakanya, may laban si employee. is that correct?
actually the bond is just given to the employee. no promises for any training or going abroad. for IT people it is usually given because they are trained and the company pays for it. my concern is, the bond is given to me as an account manager just to stay with them for a year.
in addition, the agreement was to be an account manager for local (philippine) market and upon joining the company i learned and verified that i am to do marketing and will tap/manage accounts from other countries in the asia pacific region. they reason out that the idea just came in. it is not a problem at all if i was informed beforehand. of course i will definitely sign the contract because of the initial agreement. now i am tasked to do other stuff other than what we agreed.
should i leave them, can i not pay the bond? may laban po ba ako if ever?
would greatly appreciate your insights and advise.
thank you so much!

attorney yung case ko naman po is sabi sa contract ko dapat mag render ako ng 3 months notice bago mag resign kaso nakapag AWOL po ako due to some personal and family problem. as indicated in my contract kailangan po ako mag bayad ng 150,000 pesos kung hindi po ako nakapag render ng 3 months as liquidated damages. nag papadala po sila ng sulat sa akin pero hindi ko po nababasa dahil nasa ibang bansa na po ako. tpos nag decide po ang court na mag bayad po daw ako ng 150,000 plus 25,000 as attorney's fee. wala naman po ako pera pang bayad nito at hindi ko naman po nababasa yung sulat at summons nila.

1. kailangan ko ba talagang bayaran lahat ang 175,000 pesos e wala naman ako training na nakuha sa kanila. at 2 months pa lang po ko nakakapasok sa company.
2. nagsaad po sila ng decision(court) at pwede pa po ba mabawasan itong babayran ko dahil wala naman po talaga akong pera pambyad at given na po na nag AWOL ako sa kanila talaga.
3. kung ignore ko po ito dahil wala na naman po ako sa pilipinas, anu po ang pwede nila gawin sa akin? lilitaw po ba yon sa NBI clearance? pero gusto ko na rin po matapos ito kasi nahihiya na rin po ako nasisira po ang pangalan ko. need you advice po attorney. sana matulungan nyo po ako. pwede po bang mabuksan ulit yung civil case na ito at maipag laban ko kahit nag decide na ang korte na mag bayad ako. hindi po nila binawasan masyado po malaki ang babayaran ko na 150,000 plus attorney's fee. salamat po
