1 Withheld Salary on Wed Jul 18, 2012 9:26 am

I am employed at a newly built university branch in our town (private institution). Since our official employment last June 21 until the present date, some of our co-workers have not fully complied with the needed employment documents, i.e. NBI clearance, clearance from previous employer, government ID numbers, etc., and we already signed a contract. Our employer said that until all employees can give all the required documents our salaries (from June 21 until today) will be withheld.

Is it legal for our employer to withhold our salary for said reason?

Hi..just wanna ask for help..our company is based here in Bicol..my question is with regard to delayed salary..i worked for an online teaching company..we are being paid twice a month..our cut-offs are from 6-20 and 21-5 whereas the first is being paid at 13th and the latter is paid at the 28th..they said that our salary will be paid on the 17th since the company is also going to send money on the said dates..they said that to avoid another expenses to the bank since the money would come from Korea..they don't wanna pay twice in sending the money..

My question is that, do we have the right to demand for the payment ASAP???and what can we do in order to get our salary on the said date???thanks..

what the law requires is that payments should be received at least every 16 days. if you are so minded, your remedy would be to file a complaint at the nearest dole office
