Hi, this is nimans. My company had terminated on November 2012. for 1 tardiness on January 2012 and 1 NCNS for October 2011 (which was supposed to be excused because I was sick). Both infractions should have been refreshed according to the latest COC that states every infraction will be refreshed after 6 months if the employee does not incur the same infraction within 6 months. Anyway, I filed a complaint at NLRC, then after 3 conciliations they still did not provide me with a concrete answer if they will give me what I requested for settlement. The labor arbiter had promised to let me file a position paper if by next week, they can't provide what I had requested. Therefore, next week will be their final chance to come up with a decision with regard to the amount that I am requesting.
My question is this.. Would I have a big chance of winning the case? And also, can PAO support me even though I am earning more than 14k net / month since I do not have money to pay for a lawyer? And how long does it usually take for this case to be done?
Just wanting to know what to expect if i file a position paper. Thank you so much for your time.
