after replying to the notice to explain, the company set an administrative hearing.
however, my fiance felt that from the start, he was not being accorded due process.
before the hearing, the venue was changed and nobody informed my fiance about the change in venue.
during the hearing, my fiance felt that he was not given ample opportunity to be heard because they kept interrupting him when he was trying to explain his side. it was obvious that the hearing was just a formality. they said that they will give the decision tonight, April 09.
my fiance feels that because he was not given ample opportunity to explain his side, the decision will be dismissal/termination.
is it possible for my fiance not to accept the notice if he disagrees with it? there is nothing in their handbook about contesting/appealing decisions.
i also saw somewhere in the labor law that employers are required to send the notice to the last known address of the employee and must report it to DOLE.
if my fiance refuses to accept the notice of dismissal, can he still continue going to work?
thank you for your advice.
