I am really bothered by how the Labor Arbiter's staff is treating me. My Employer didn't appear in the hearings set by the Labor Arbiter so I was told to submit my position paper and that they are not allowed to submit theirs for non appearance which is the NLRC Ruling. But then when I went their first week of March they told me that the respondent Company lawyer was there and that they submitted a motion to lift, but I didn't receive any copy. what is Motion to Lift?
Last Monday, I submitted my position paper and when I asked what will I do next, the staff told me that the respondent Company already submitted their position paper to my address a while ago but told them I didn't receive any. They told me to just wait for the decision.
My question is why are they allowed to submit a position paper? Why I did not receive any copy of the so called Motion to Lift?
