Hello Members,

Can i refuse to sign a quit claim and still get my backpay?

The company that i worked for suddenly terminated my 2 year contract. my contract is supposed to expire in April 2018. The termination is quite unfair so i am planning to file a case against the company. but i waited for the backpay because i want to see if they will give me credit for my work. just yesterday they sent me the computation and i am furious that they did not give me even a peso for incentive.

Thanks in advance.

The company won't release your check / last pay if you don't sign the quitclaim.

they will hold it till you sign. If you are planning to file a complaint, you should include that (non-payment of final pay)
