I filed a complaint before the NLRC years ago against my former employer for illegal dismissal with the help of a PAO lawyer. After several months or so the labor arbiter decided in favor of my former employer dismissing the case. My attorney then filed an appeal before the commission. A year later the commission gave the decision reversing the labor arbiter's decision with a monetary award. My former employer then filed a Motion for Reconsideration which in turn denied by the NLRC 8th Division.
My former employer is now seeking for writ of certiorary before the Court of Appeals.
Though I'm not a lawyer myself, per my understanding, to perfect an appeal the petitioner (my former employer) must post a bond or cash ( or surety ). Can you enlighten me on this?
Furthermore, if there is no bond made by my former employer am I entitled to seek a writ of execution to implement the 8th Division's decision?
I will look for your reply... Thanks.
