Our employer refused to coordinate with us on March 7 as to what time they will put in funds on the account until today that it is officially a return check. I will go back to DOLE Pasig on Monday, March 11 to inform them what happened and to nullify the quit claims that we have signed.
I am actually thinking of filing a formal case at NLRC however I am thinking if it is possible that DOLE can help me get the payment for the amount on the bounced check and include the amount that I paid for my personal loan at SSS which is originally amounting to 16K (2011) including the interest which is now at around 23K so I can make my payment myself at SSS.
If this cannot be done and I decided to file the case at NLRC, then can I demand for the salary arrears, 13th month pay, SSS loan payment amount, then my contributions for SSS, Philhealth and Pag ibig?
I also found out that the company has not been remitting our taxes since 2008 but they are still deducting taxes on us even on the salary arrears and 13th month pay computation on the check.
Can I also demand for backwages for the days that I did not go to work because they fail on giving our salaries since November of 2012?
Also, I would also like to know if I can also demand for moral damages since my family has been struggling and in debt since November of 2012.
If I decided to go ahead and file a case, does my case have a chance to prosper?
Thank you so much in advance for your assistance.
