1 resignation due to compromised health on Thu Feb 05, 2015 5:38 pm

Hi!
I'm currently working on a BPO company here in the Philippines and I want to seek a legal advise regarding with filing a formal resignation letter because my health is compromised with my job. Before i started my job with them i'm perfectly fine both physically and mentally.
But when i started my health went down, and its affecting my performance with them consistently i'm having sick leave every month and i spoke with my immediate supervisor that my health is compromised with my job and my priority is my health. with this matter and advised about the contract i signed which has a employment bond.
In the bond, it says that i must be with the company for 12 month (1 year). If i ever wish to terminate my contract before the 1 year contract end i have to pay the bond amounting to 100 thousand pesos (100,000). I'm with the company for four months now and i really want to file a resignation because i think i am not physically fit and psychologically fit for the job.
I just want to ask if ever i will file a resignation letter because of health reasons, will i be still liable to the bond or will the bond be void.
I need an legal advice immediately so that i can have measures and basis under the law when i file my resignation immediately.
Thank you in advance and God bless.

will you kindly check first your subsisting contract about this kind of contingency before taking further actions. Because you have a contractual relationship with the BPO company, that contract until terminated or rescinded subsists.

check if the contract provides for an exit clause due to health contingencies, and if ever there is one, examine the contract again to find out if health contingencies is an exception to the application of the bond.

thanks

Check the contract first.

Generally unless clearly indicated in the contract these provisions still hold and you may still be liable.

If you resign due to health reasons you may need a public doctor to confirm that you are not fit to work.
