1 Diminution of Benefits | Skill Premium on Fri Jun 10, 2016 2:20 am


Arresto Menor

I need a legal advise. Here's the scenario:

I have been with the company for 10 years already. Started as an agent, got promoted to quality department then move again to another role supporting a technical account. Got entitled to tech premium, and have been enjoying it for several years already, roughly 4-5 yrs. Then re-organization is happening and was informed that the Tech Premium will be taken out.

I find it unfair. Will this suffice for a Diminution of Benefits under our Labor Code?

Appreciate your advise.

Probably not.

tech premium is usually for certain positions - with the reorganization the new positions may not be entitled to it.

I see.. consulted some legal advise too and said that it may merit under labor code diminution of benefits since we have been enjoying this benefits for several years already and we didn't move to any new position or got promoted for any instance.

We had a meeting with hrbp and was told that they will find ways to make an adjustment to our basic salary to compensate for the lost of tech premium. However, he said that there's no guarantee and no timeline provided.
