1 Sudden Change sa Contract on Mon Aug 01, 2016 11:54 am


Arresto Menor
Hi, my contract stated a 14-hour working time with a basic of 12K as 9-hour regular working time and 7K for the other 5 hours part time schedule. Total 19K.

Suddenly my company changed my schedule to a 9 hour sched with a salary of 12K, stating their reason is that they have given me 3 warnings for tardiness. I told them that I only signed one tardiness notice and they have only verbally given me casual warnings. In the handbook, they should have given me 3 written notice for the changes to be effective.

They reasoned out that it is their decision and they don't need to follow the rules. Verbal warnings, as they told me, are alo counted as legal notice. I am now confused, is this lawful? Should I ask for a black and white copy of my new schedule? Should they change my contract and let me sign it before the effectivity of this new schedule?

Unless stated that overtime is guaranteed, they can deduct that under the principle of no work no pay. They just won't authorize overtime for you. You can challenge this but in my opinion your complaint will not prosper.

Verbal warnings can be considered legal notice but if you deny that you received verbal warnings then they have to prove it. I would advise you to ask for a written copy of your new schedule but be advised that your employer cannot be forced to do so.

Yes it would be better fr you to ask for a new contract but again the employer is under no obligation to do so. It would be better for them though if merong bagong contract
