Today, at 5:05pm, we received a notice saying:
According to our company policy whenever the salary date falls on a Monday employees will receive their salary in advance on a Friday. Unfortunately, due to the recent weather disturbances and that most banks only resumed operations yesterday your payroll is still being processed. So please be advised that the salary will be provided on Monday, Aug. 26, and not today. I appreciate your understanding and please relay this information to the rest of the team. Thank you.
According to labor code Chapter III Art 103 on timing of payments,
Wages shall be paid at least once every two (2) weeks or twice a month at intervals not exceeding sixteen (16) days.
Our previous salary was given on August 9 therefore making August 26 which is a holiday 17 days.
This is the first time it happened. Is this already a valid ground for a case that can be brought to NLRC?
