I have researched Labor Code Art 133 and R.A. 8282 (a.k.a. Social Security Act) Sec. 14-A.
Please enlighten me:
- since these are two different laws covering wages and social security benefits, does it mean that my colleague MUST receive 100% of her regular or average weekly wages from our employer AND a daily maternity benefit equivalent to 100% of her average daily salary credit for 60 days (as she will be under normal delivery); or are these two laws one and the same, meaning she will just receive the provision once?
I would like to request for citations (as recent as possible) of cases that were resolved in court to corroborate these laws to be presented to the complainant and our General Manager.
Thank you very much for your help!
