I tendered my resignation from Volkswagen Philippines last Dec. 21, 2015 and my last day at work was Jan. 15, 2016.
I have complied with all the requirements that my previous employer asked from me, and have turned over all my pending tasks properly. I have been following up on a regular basis with the HR department as well, but I keep getting answers that my previous direct supervisor does not want to sign my clearance for vague reasons.
So last March 23, 2016 I talked to my previous superior to clarify with her if I still have pending items and she informed me that she's the one who's been following up with the HR for my clearance, but the HR hasn't given any clearance documents.
It has been four months since I tendered my resignation and up to now, Volkswagen Philippines won't give me any clear answers. They won't even return my texts and calls. It's like they're holding on to my final pay just because they feel like it or out of personal vendetta. It's not even a big amount, but I'm sure you can understand that I am entitled to receive what I have worked for. All I want is to be treated fairly.
I know the Labor Code doesn't say anything about how long the final pay can be given, but can you please give me some advice?
Thank you so much.
