Actually there is no training or valid reason for the bond. below are the excerpt stated in my contract. Kung titignan talagang luging lugi si employee.
At first wala naman talaga ako intention umalis sa current company ko. pero there are conditions prior to accepting this contract na hindi nila sinunod. like working schedule etc.
"You commit yourself to a service requirement of one (1) year from date of hire (November 2, 2015 – November 2, 2016). You further acknowledge that your signature on this employment contract unqualifiedly binds you to the provisions thereof. Consequently, any violation thereof (including backing out from employment), or in case you resign or are terminated for just causes, such as
but not limited to gross misconduct and insubordination, prior to the completion of the minimum one (1) year service requirement, you agree to pay the amount of Three Hundred Thousand Pesos (Php300.000.00), payable within five (5) days from the pre-termination of this agreement, without any need of demand from the company. Should the company be constrained to refer to a lawyer for any violation of the terms and conditions of this agreement, you agree to bind yourself to be liable for attorney fees in an amount not less than Thirty Thousand Pesos (PhpP30,000.00) and litigation expenses of not less than Twenty Thousand Pesos (Php 20,000.00)."
Well. There is allways SOME training/introduction, because even if the new employee is very skilled, he need to get an introduction by someone and learn the customs the new employer company has, be shown where to be, where things are and such.
BUT if you have got very litle training, then you have signed a "slave contract" I don't know
if the Philippines have any law saying it's possible a contract can be invalid if it favour to much the part which wrote the contract text. (My home county have such law). I GUESS the Philippines DON'T have such law because traditionaly there are many laws there protecting them with POWER instead of protecting the weaker part
BUT some fair laws have passed the parlament since the colonisation period, so perhaps such law is added. Ask DOLE if no one tell it here.
You HAVE signred a contract saying you have to pay 300 000,
and even MORE if you question it, so the company need a lawyer...
So I hope there is such law against to much unfair contracts.
