1 employee termination on Wed Jan 29, 2014 1:06 am


Arresto Menor
Hi atty.

My case is very unusual. 3 weeks ago I surrendered my company cellphone to replace it with a new unit. I forgot to delete the messages on my old company phone. Then secretary of my boss got my former phone and read all my messages. They are now planing to terminate me because I have a text message to one of our accounting staffs to make it look that all invoices of oct last year were already paid even though there is one specific invoice that is not paid. I texted this because they will be scolded by the management if our boss will find out that there was a wrong posting of payment and I also don't want my boss to think there was conivance with the accounting dept only learned the misposting 2 months after I got my commision. After a few weeks have passed I managed to collect the payment for that unpaid invoice. Now back to the present. My office is making a big deal out of it and they are thinking that there are more mysterious transactions. Now I submitted a written explanation to my boss. This is just the same as my explanation above.

Now my question is this.

What should I do? I now this falls in "Breach of Trust" clause of the labor code but this was really an honest mistake.

Hoping for your soonest advice.
