I am a nurse. I was terminated from job when I was on my 3rd month of probationary period..My 2 managers broke the news to me last October 10,2012 that i was not able to make it to continue my probationary period.
Due to shock. I decided na d n ako pumasok after sabihin sakin na tanggal n ako sa trabaho.And alam ng mga manager yun.
Few days after, I asked them if pwede bang resignation nalang ang status ko instead of termination para di naman panget sa record ko if ever na contackin sila ng future employers ko.So my managers agreed and let me send them with a resignation letter. ( as adviced by senior co-workers) and nung inabot ko ung Resignation letter, they have asked me to pass 5 explanation letters regarding my so called short comings as staff nurse which I believed they will use for documentations.
One manager told me that they will notify me once my COE is ready for pick up.Upon asking sa mga seniors ko sa work, sabi nila mabilis lang ang processing ng COE. more than a week or so.
Late in november last year, nag ff up ako sa HR if pwede ko na makuha ung COE ko since it has been a month mula nung pinasa ko ung resignation letter. The HR personnel told me that it was ready for pick up but upon clarifications if mag papasign pa ako for exit clearance, she asked me kung resigned na daw ba ako kasi wala pa xang natatanggap na Reignation letter. So I called the Nursing service office secretary to make some clarifications as advised by HR personnel.And wala pa din daw sa kanya yung resignation letter ko.
To cut the story short, I communicated with them several times. My direct unit manager said that she already have passed my letter to her superior. but then up until now this superior manager is holding my letter and fails to submit my resignation letter kaya walang mairelease ang HR for COE.
This has been bogging me for 3 months now.And I am afraid to asked them (my managers)for actions regarding this issue since I asked them a favor of changing my status from termination to resignation. My questions are
1. Do you think there is some irregularities on my termination or do they (the managers) hold the right to do that without talking to me or giving me some warnings prior to coming up to their decision to terminate me on my proabtionary period.
2. Do I have the rights to exert some legal actions on letting me wait for the COE?Because I think, they are just letting time just pass hanggang di ko na sila kulitin for my COE.
