1 Delay in wages on Sat Jan 16, 2016 9:38 am

I am currently employed in one of the highest ranking bpo in metro manila. The problem that im having with this company right now is delay in wages. Last dec 29, 2015, i received a salary worth P2,790. That salary date is supposed to include my 10 days work and a tax refund worth P5,440. Our manager's explanation about this is some issues with our timestamp system and that there will be a special payout that will be release in jan 6, 2016. I thought it may be a valid reason for the delay so we accepted it and waited until jan 6. Came jan 6, the amount that was put in our atms are still not sufficient. We were again promised that all lacking amounts will be given at the coming salary date of jan 15, 2016. So weve waited again on the said date but without any luck, the lacking amount was still not included. We asked for again a special payout because we felt its so ridiculous already and we have mouths to feed and bills to pay. Our managers told us that our finance dept just asked us to wait for the next pay period which is jan 29, 2016. Is this a valid case for us to file in DOLE? Im hoping for your immediate response. Thank you.

Depends if such delay is recurring, meaning, not only once but many times happened. If this is the case, you have a strong case with the DOLE, for the labor law provides payment of wages at least 2x a month. And when you say payment of wages, it should be your exact wages.

It's the first time, so it may just be a one-time mistake.

Yes, council. So is it a valid case? What do we need to do for those inconveniences it caused us? Should we let it pass? Were not even sure if its gonna be resolved on jan 29 pay period. Pls advise. Thanks in advance.

sad to say you dont have a case, since its not a recurring situation in the company. But if it is still the same situation until let say July this year, then you can forward your case to the DOLE.

Keep the pay slip for evidences that your wages was not paid in exact and on different dates
