The story starts here, first, I was hired and given a monthly salary rate of P 15,000.00/month with a working schedule from 9 am to 8 pm during Monday to Thursday and 9 am to 6 pm during Fridays last December 10, 2015.
And then as we are working we noticed that there are discrepancies on the report of payroll, others are staying only from 9 am-6 pm and Mon-Fri which is 40 hours only.
Then, our department head complained, proposed and seek approval to have an increase which is approved and granted by our CEO. Which is, according to book 30% which is rendering 48 hours or 6 days. But due to wrong computation, it was not 30%. Mine was 15,000 then became 17,750 which is not an increase of 30% dated March 1, 2016 but the salary adjustment was applied April 11, 2016. And, as time passed by, I was regularized. I got an increase based from 17,750 to 19,250.00. And now, a memo was issued that our 9am to 8pm will be changed back to 9am to 6pm. making it 40 hours a week.
But as an effect, also, salary will be decreased on my end, from 19,250 to 16,500. Since the effect of increase is only because I will not be rendering 48 hours/week anymore. Is this okay or allowable?
