Can I raise a money Claim from my previous employer through NLRC?

Hi,

I tendered a 30 days resignation notice to my previous employer which was received and acknowledge by our General Manager. However my contract states that we are required of a 90-days notice period or else we need to pay Salary in Lieu.(I have a foreign employer for a background). Our labor law allows us a minimum of 30 days notice period so I exercise my right to it.
During my last day of work, i was given my last pay computation and the company deducted the remaining of the 90 days on my last pay, and I even paid a check payable to CASH to my employer because my last pay is not enough to cover the Salary in Lieu amount.

My question now is, is it still possible for me to raise a "MONEY CLAIM" case in NLRC for me to get back all the money that I pay my previous employer? Do I have grounds to file a case in the first place.

Thanks.

on what grounds do you want to file a money claim?

I was the only one that paid the company the salary in Lieu. The others that followed me who rendered 30 days have not paid any amount.

ah unfortunately thats not a valid complaint. You signed a contract. If ever i think you need to file a civil suit but it looks like your chances wll be slim
