1 SEPARATION PAY on Wed Jan 10, 2018 10:40 am

Good morning!

I work in the food service industry but our restaurant will be closed this January. We the employees are promised that we are going to receive our separation pay, service charge, backpay, etc. But my questions are...

- Separation pay is different from backpay right? Are we going to receive our separation pay before the store closes? Or is it the same with backpay like we will wait for months for us to receive it.

Feedbacks will be appreciated! Cheers! ☺️

Separation pay is different from back pay.  Back pay is your last payslip which includes all days worked, vl/sl conversion, pro rated 13th month pay, tax refund if any.  Separation pay is payment for the years of service you rendered to the company, ask your HR how much is the separation pay, if it's 1 month or half month salary X years of service.

As to when it will be given, it depends on the company, they could just give it all at once, separation pay + back pay.

So I just heard from our accountant and payroll officer that our separation pay will be given after 2-3 months. Is that even possible? I mean it's separation pay! Not backpay. It's unfair for us to wait that long ffs.

The company's closing so it's going to be a take it or leave it situation. You can file a complaint at nlrc, but that will take longer than 2-3 months

Separation pay is different from backpay. Closure of business, as an authorized cause for termination of employment, requires payment of separation pay. Try reading this, I hope it helps. https://www.alburovillanueva.com/authorized-causes-termination-employment

Just make sure that the amount of separation pay that you receive is correct, which is 1 month pay, or 1/2 month pay for every year of service, whichever is higher.

Is there a particular article on the Labor code para sa change ng name ng company for the employees to receive a separation pay?

nope, as long as same company parin but nag change name lang, no separation pay. But if nagsara yung company tapos nag bukas under a different name, entitled kayo sa separation pay as long as ang declared nila na reason for closure is not because of business losses.
