1 salary confused on Thu Feb 07, 2013 7:34 am


Arresto Menor
hi there,i am newly hired in the company.
my contract that i signed said that i will be receiving a monthly basis worth Php9,990.00 plus allowances.Last past holiday our working days was from dec.15-dec.21 only because we have xmas vacation.whwn we received our salary they deducted dec.22 to 31.because they said we dont have work on that day,but they are the one (company)who said that we dont have work. we resume @ work at jan7 as they announced again but again they deducted the days (jan1-6)that we don have work. we believe we are fixed salary and they dont supposed to deduct us the days that they annunced that "no work".please help us to clarify.

sample payslip.period dec 16-31
gross income:
semi monthly basic 4,959
holiday -
ns 182.40
subtotal 5,141.40

others 1,824 (this is the
one that they said,they deduct this bcos we dont have work for the days that they annouced tha we have no work)

add: allowances.

why do they have to deduct that?in a first place company is the one who announced that we hane no work for that days.Is it should be affected on a monthly basis salary contract?

.,.it happens always.

I agree with Patok.

It is the employer that fixes your work schedule and not the other way around. Think about it, you worked for less than a month and you want a whole month's salary?

It's just like being absent from work, no work=no pay.

Don't you think that it would be economically destructive if employees were paid for days they didn't work for?.
