1 FLOATING STATUS on Tue Nov 05, 2013 9:25 pm


Arresto Menor
Hello, I have been reading some posts in this forum about floating status. We were placed on floating status. I understand that being on floating status is legal even without any pay or allowance. Having read our labor code, the company should "serve a written notice on the workers and the Ministry of Labor and Employment at least one (1) month before the intended date thereof." What if the letter was served not one month before the intended date?

Thank you!

it is considered an irregularity but does not necessarily render the floating status void.

3 Floating Status on Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:07 am


Arresto Menor
Hi! I am working in a BPO company and currently on a floating status since the account that we are working with pulled out. I understand that it is LEGAL that we wouldn't be receiving any pay until we get reinstated but I have few questions.

01: We started to be placed on floating last Dec 15, 2013 and on our last pay which was just last Dec 30th, no basic pay was given at all. Is it legal for them to do it since they told us that basic pay is being given real time?

02: In connection to the first question, the tax that was deducted from us was way to high than the normal though we don't have any basic pay on our last payout. Active employees of the company were given the refund but not us who are on floating. Is it legal for the company not to issue refunds for those who are currently on floating?

03: I understand that the company shouldn't be conducting external hiring until all those who are on floating status are given a new job. Our company also have a site in Cebu and they are currently hiring on that site? Is it legal for them not to offer those jobs to those who are on floating status?

04: Lastly, is it legal for a company to conduct another set of interview just like you are applying again for a new job yet you are already hired and regularized by the company, to get reprofiled?

Hoping for your response. Thank you.
