Mejo kumplikado po...sana po matulungan niyo ako.
I was working for a private company as a tutor... I think magaling po ako sa ginagawa ko...so there was a former co-worker who started his own business and convinced me to work for him. He asked me to work full time for him and quit with my current company. I trusted him..so I quit with my company and chose to work for him. He offered me a salary higher than what I'm getting...that was what I thought. After weeks of working with him I realized...mas maliit pala ang sahod ko sa knya dahil sa dami ng workload n binibigay niya sa kin...so I decided to quit.
Nung pina-pirate po niya ako..he offered me my 1st month of salary as his advance payment...I agreed and signed something. When I decided to quit...I already worked for a month..so I don't owe him anything. He paid me one-month in advance and worked for a month.
Nung umalis ako...bigla niya kong tinatakot n idedemanda raw niya ako dahil sa pagk-quit ko...pinasakit ko daw ang ulo niya..and that I ruined his business. Binabawi niya ung binayad niya sa akin ng buo...but I worked for it...so hard, kung ibabalik ko un sa knya eh di bale libre na lang ung naging work ko sa kanya for the month that I worked for him.
Puede po ba akong mademanda just because nag-quit ako? Isn't that my discretion if I'm no longer happy with the job he offered me?
Wala po kaming agreement na dapat akong mag work sa knya for a certain period of time...most of the conversation we had were just verbal since pini-rate nga niya ako from my previous company.
Can he sue me simply because I quit from working for him and he does not have anyone to handle the job he gave me? I gave him a two-week notice to give him time to get another tutor for the students...I even recommended someone but he declined.
Please help me understand more. I'm stupid when it comes to things like this. I just want to know my right and if I really overstepped his right on any way...I want to be aware if I might get sued because of what I did.
Thank You and I will be waiting for a response.
