1 Bank Cases Review on Fri Oct 25, 2013 11:51 pm

Need opinion on how to proceed.

Just resigned from previous job in a bank. I had been being singled out by previous superiors for lost of some accountable items for being the only single remaining accountable employee, as previous supervisors have priorly resigned. I was priorly asked to explain my side in writing which I did and waited if the bank will pursue a case against me. I gave them the required 30 day notice upon resignation and no case was filed against me even after the 30 day effectivity of my resignation. No notice was ever served upon me. When I followed up my clearance and hopefully some compensation, I was told there was a memo from the Banks Case review committee directing the HR not to proceed with the processing of my clearance and partial retirement pay until the case has been resolved. Moreover, as I have an existing personal cash loan with the bank, I was told that any monetary benefit I may have will have to settle first the case review claim before the loan. Do I need to elevate the matter with DOLE? Can the bank do this legally?

Ask for the statement of your liabilities and the proceed you may received from them. If the amount is enough to cover then no problem. I think they have the right to withhold your proceeds because you have remaining accountability. Challenge them to file a case.How about due process??If none they have problem to file the case against you.

Thank you Sir for your immediate reply.

I think there was no due process. I have not received any notification at the time I filed my resignation until the lapsed of the 30 day mandatory period and up until now even by registered mail or personal delivery in my residential address.

Can I use that issue (lack of due process) in my proposed case before the DOLE? The case is yet to be decided and I could not determine yet the extent of my liability. In the meantime, my supposed unpaid loan, which should have been covered by my benefits, is now earning continued interest and penalties and they are requiring me to pay for the loan while the case in pending.

your argument should be that the set-off is effective upon the date of your separation from the company. you should compute it yourself.
