1 Availment of Emergency Leaves on Thu Oct 02, 2014 10:42 pm


Arresto Menor

I have 5 days emergency leaves, and I avail 2 of them last Glenda Typhoon as I was residing in Imus Cavite and our area was hit by the "eye of the storm".

Our HR team is only accepting 1 EL because as per policy, we can only avail 1-EL at a time and 2nd day should be filed as VL.

My question is:
1. I'm unaware of the company policy regarding 1EL per time and it's not indicated in my contact that such policy exist, can I dispute their claim?

2. The HR team requested a Brgy. Certificate to authenticate my residency. I filed the necessary documents, but in the end, they still decline my 2nd day EL. On a worst case, can I file a case in DOLE if they won't consider my dispute?

3. What case can I file against my company?

Check company policy first.

1. You can dispute to the point of clarification. Ask for a copy of the pertinent regulation. If you're unaware, then you are being made aware already by the HR team.

2. They ask for a Brgy cert to authenticate your residency - standard procedure. But it's purpose is not just for the 2nd day of EL. Bottom line, no case until the first (above) is cleared.

3. none, unless you plan to consider leaving the company once the case is resolved.
