Magandang araw po, Ask ko lang po, teacher po ako sa isang private school dito sa angeles city pampanga. Na hired po ako sa isang school na ito at nagsigned po ako ng contract na ang starting salary nila ay 8k na kung saan magtuturo po ako sa school from june 2014 up to march 2015. Sa nasabing starting salary po na iyon wala daw po kmi kaltas sa mga benefits like sss, pag-ibig, philhealth; nag agree nman po kmi mga newly hired teacher sa school na iyon at sinigned namin ang contract na buo namin mkukuha ang starting salary which is 8k. Kya every 15th-30th day ng bawat buwan nkukuha namin ng buo ang 4k. Pero, nung nag inspection ang taga dole daw po, bawal daw po pla na wlang benefit na kinakaltasan like sss, kaya mineeting po kmi na starting september ay mkakaltasan nkmi ng sss, philhealth, pagibig.
Eto na po yung naging problema: 8k po ang starting salary at ang total na makakaltas (sss, phihealth etc.) ay 475 na babawasan every 15th day ng buwan sa bawat sweldo. so dapat ang mkukuha naming salary ay 7525 nlng (3525 every 15th day and 4k for 30th day of sweldo). Kaya lang hindi po ganun ang nangyari, bigla nlang nabawas sa starting salary po namin yung 500 every month of salary. Aside dun sa 475 benefit na nbawas merun pang di ma explain na pgkawala ng 500. starting september po bigla ang nkalagay sa payslip po nmin ay 7500 nlang ang starting. namin. Pwede po ba yun? without prior notice bigla binaba yung sinigned namin dun sa contract na 8k ang starting salary? wala naman po siya pinasigned sa amin na new contract na inaamend na bigla bumaba ang starting salary. Ang katwiran po ng school head/principal ay meeting nya daw po kmi at nag-agree daw po kmi, which is a lie. ang mineeting nya po sa amin ay mkakaltasan lng po kmi sa mga benefits at hindi bababa bigla ang starting. Ang sinasabi ko po sana ay dpat may pinasigned sya na new contract, valid po ba yung ginawa ng school head na sinasabi nya daw po sa amin yun ng verbally? tama po ba na ipaglaban ko iyong biglang bumabang starting salary o hindi? Sad
Sana po masagot nyo po tanung ko, thank you in advance..

Any deductions should be agreed upon in writing.

Kung walang kasulatan, pwede ireklamo sa DOLE ng non-payment (or diminution of benefits).

I agree with Sir Council.

All changes in a contract must be agreed upon by both parties, no matter how "incremental" the amendment may be.

If there was no prior agreement to the adjustment of the salary as per your version of the story, then such contractual changes are void as per what the New Civil Code provides.

As aptly cited by sir Council, the DOLE may take cognizance of the case since this is a diminution of benefits, and the labor code does not tolerate that under Sec. 100 of the Labor Code.

Good luck sa case nyo, sir Alvin, and may all of your efforts be rewarded appropriately... afro

Thank you Sir council and sir thepoetsedge for your responses and answers, tomorrow na yung conference namin sa dole with the school head, how I wish pupunta sya. Hopefully ma settle na ito kc nagmamatigas yung school head/principal, di nya maadmit na mali ginawa nya. Bukas nyan sa dole magkakaalaman na.. Cool

I am glad to hear that, Sir Alvin! Do not hesitate to post further questions here para matulungan ka pa namin further with the best of our abilities...

Keep everything documented para mareview nyo yung mga nangyayari and para may future basis kayo ng mga facts of your case. If you need legal advice, try nyong pumunta sa Public Attorney's Office sa City Hall nyo... Hopefully, they can give you free counsel if need be...

Good luck ulit! I hope everything works out in your favor... Smile
