Obligatory 30 day Rendering due to Resignation

Hi, more power to you all. You're doing a great job and service to all of us who are unaware of our Legal rights and Obligations.
My concern is regarding the 30 day rendering being required from those who want to resign from the BPO company we're working for. I have once talked to an OIC in NLRC and he told me that it is not lawful to impose or require an employee to render any certain number of days if he/she wants to resign so long as that person does not have documents or anything of sort that needs to be turned-over first otherwise the operation would be affected. He even mentioned "there's no more slavery". Is this truly the case? because I'v known friends who ended up getting terminated for refusing to render 30 days thus incurring a bade record on their employment file. pls help po. Question

Hi, in addition, just in case I do get an answer to this post, may I ask to be directed to where I can read that part of the Labor Law like which book volume, chapter and verse, please? I really want to be able to read up on everything that I may find applicable.
