1 deduction on delays on Sun Jan 23, 2011 7:09 pm


Arresto Menor
Is it stated in the labor code that an employee should shoulder expenses incurred by the employer due to delay of deliveries or circumstances that the employee commit mistakes regarding measurement of the items etc..... Does the employee have the right to appeal when the employer deduct all those expenses on their salary? Sad

employees may be made to pay for damages due to mistakes and negligence, but there has to be due process to determine if the employee is truly liable.

SECTION 14. Deduction for loss or damage. — Where the employer is engaged in a trade, occupation or business where the practice of making deductions or requiring deposits is recognized to answer for the reimbursement of loss or damage to tools, materials, or equipment supplied by the employer to the employee, the employer may make wage deductions or require the employees to make deposits from which deductions shall be made, subject to the following conditions:

(a) That the employee concerned is clearly shown to be responsible for the loss or damage;

(b) That the employee is given reasonable opportunity to show cause why deduction should not be made;

(c) That the amount of such deduction is fair and reasonable and shall not exceed the actual loss or damage; and

(d) That the deduction from the wages of the employee does not exceed 20 percent of the employee's wages in a week.
