1 Holding salary without resigning on Fri Feb 08, 2013 1:32 am


Arresto Menor
Hi,please help me out..I'm working in Mandaluyong and residing in QC. I got sick and wasnt not ableto go come to work last January 27. But I was able to send an email with my med cert to my superior since I cant call the sick hotline because I was suffering from asthmatic bronchitis. I was able to talk to my superior last Sunday and advise that I will not resign and will just secure fit to work from my doctor. Now it was our payday and they hold my salary. I was able to talk to HR and they said I was tagged as AWOL? Is this legal? as I dont have plans of resigning and even reiterated this to my superior. I need my salary for my fare and medicines.Please help. Thank you very much. Im absent for 10 days now.

Yes abuse of discretion, if things go worst, file a complaint against that abusive supervisor. I am also a supervisor in my section but I can't make it appoint to tag my staff AWOL knowing that there's an advance information. I am considering myself as human same as my staff as human.
