1 RE SEPARATION PAY on Wed May 25, 2016 8:25 pm


Arresto Menor
Blessed day to everyone. We would like to seek legal advise regarding our scenario in the office.

Our BPO company started around 2009-2010 under registered name BPO-AAA. After few years, BPO-AAA has changed ownership due to separation of partnership, it was changed to BPO-BBB (different registered name) around January 2015. Then it changed again on April 2015 and went back to the same ownership of BPO-AAA but with a different registered name, its now BPO-CCC.
As far as we know, there were no financial losses in between the transition of company/ company names. And we are servicing the same client (account) from BPO-AAA until BPO-CCC (presently).

In the process, those employees who continuously were following the transition of ownership/ registered name, should we receive any separation pay? From BPO-AAA or BPO-BBB?

The ones concerned are those currently employed from BPO-AAA until BPO-CCC. We did submit a resignation letter when we moved from BPO-AAA to BPO-BBB and the same when we moved to BPO-BBB to BPO-CCC.

Was that enough to say we formally resigned from the previous company's and should entitle us a separation pay?

This is because, no separation pay was given from the previous companies (AAA and BBB), giving us the idea that our tenureship from the every beginning is still official. The current HR of BPO-CCC says they cannot certify tenureship anything dated before April 2015.

Given that statement, should we be entitled for the separation pay?

Please help us understand our rights and feel free to ask for any clarifications. Thank you.

Unless your previous company or companies had a retirement plan or policy clearly stating such, you might not have any grounds to claim for any separation pay.

If you submitted a resignation letter you are not entitled to separation pay
