1 Breach Of Contract on Mon Jul 10, 2017 4:50 pm

Good pm sir/madam.
Need po ng advice kung anong dapat kong gawin. Wala kasi akong idea at hindi ako makatulog kakaisip.
Eto po yung nangyari;

I am a seafarer or lets say i WAS.
Na-schedule po akong umalis papuntang houston para sumampa sa aking barko.
July 6 po ang alis ko, nagback-out po ako nung nandun na ako sa NAIA dahil hindi po kinaya ng aking damdamin ang pag-alis.
Alam ko po na maaari akong kasuhan ng aking employer.

Ininform ko po agad sila sa nangyari at sinabihan nga po ako ng aking crewing manager na magreport kinabukasan.
Pinagawa nya din po ako ng writtet letter stating why i backed out.
July 7 po (friday) nang magreport ako sa office sa aking manager.
Wala naman po syang nasabi about legal respobsibilities ko or kung ano pong dapat kong gawin, sinabon lang ako nang sinabon. Hindi nya din daw alam ang gagawin nya sakin.

Gusto ko lang po kasi sana ayusin ang gusot, harapin ang kaparusahan at linisin ang pangalan ko bago ako umalis sa kumpanya. Wala na rin kasi po akong balak na umalis at sumakay pa ng barko.
Hindi ko po alam ang dapat kong gawin. Kung dapat po ba akong bumalik sa opisina at kausapin ang hindi ko alam kung sinong dapat kausapin or maghantay na lang ng tawag nila o imbitasyon galing sa korte na ako at may kaso na. Please help me po dahil diko po talaga alam ang aking gagawin. Salamat po

una mo gawin is basahin mo yung contract na pinirmahan mo since kung kakasuhan ka, dun nila ibabase yung case.

i have done this several times sir. at sya nga pala, ayon sa section 2, A(commencement/duration of contract) ng standard terms and conditions governing the overseas employment of filipino seafarers on-board ocean-going ships, "The employment contract between the employer and the seafarer shall commence upon 'Actual Departure' of the seafarer from the Philippine airport or seaport in the point of hire and with a POEA approved contract."

Tama ba ang pagkakaintindi ko na hindi pa mag ttake-effect etong kontrata na ito hanggat walang aktuwal na departure?
Sa kaso kong iton, wala naman hong aktuwal na departure na naganap dahil nag-back out ho ako bago sumakay ng eroplano. ty

most probably wala sila ikaso sayo pero mas maganda parin na makipag usap ka sa opisina ng agency at harapin mo kung ano man ang hilingin nila sayo. nagbayad ka na ba sa kanila ng placement fee?

Wala hong hinihinging placement fee yung agency namin. This was my 6th contract sakanila. Sakanila na talaga ako employed since i started sailing. Yun naman sana talaga ang gusto kong gawin sakanila. Makipag usap at makiusap nang maayos pero hindi ko kasi alam kung sino dapat ang kausapin, i asked my crewing manager kung sino ang dapat ko kausapin at sinagot nya ako ng "hindi ko alam kung kanino ka makikipag-usap!"

if that is the case eh antayin mo na lang na sila ang magreach out sayo. just inform them for any changes on your contact details or address para in good faith yung willingness mo makipag cooperate sa process nila.

Hi can a non-compete clause actually restricts you from applying directly to your previous employers clients?

Is it legal to terminate your employment even if you are under the 5 year contract?

YES of course. Even when the employee is under a 5-year contract, the employer can terminate the service of an employee through Just and Authorized Causes under the law.

EXAMPLE. If the employee commits theft, does this mean he/she cannot be terminated because he/she is under contract? Not so.
