Lately, my employer came across an article about 13th month and he's thinking of removing 13th month benefit from managers that includes me. My question is, can my employer just say that I'm not eligible to receive 13th month at this time of the year? Below are some of my points on why I should still be getting my 13th month:
1. I've been getting 13th month since my first year, even in my previous years in the same role/position as now.
2. Most of my time is still dedicated to programming, which is what our rank-and-file employees do. Though I have a say on hiring and firing of staff.
3. I'm included in the company's payroll same as the rest.
4. There's no signed contract that my position is managerial and that I won't be getting 13th month.
