1 NTE/D.A. issued on Sat Jun 16, 2018 9:35 am


Arresto Menor
Hi atty,
I was allegedly caught browsing a site by our 2 bosses as they were passing my station. They filed their incident report and advised my supervisor to draft the NTE as they felt that there is a need for me to explain what they had "glimpse". This is without confronting me to validate if what they had seen is a non work related site. I did even close the page and just switch over to another browser or app to have it verified. I spoke to one of the bosses and even clarified that she saw a page that has pictures but could not justify if it is a non work related site. Without any validation or evidence, my sup had still drafted the NTE. I explained on my letter that I have browsed just work related site and asking to provide me evidence for their allegations. I just thought that I am providing clarification since they do not have the evidence what they saw but it appears to be an allegation. Eventually, I was given a sanction by the HR and my sup explained that the corroborating statement from the 2 bosses would suffice yet I have read the incident report of one of the bosses stating she saw some pictures but did not indicate there is a violation as I believe that she was not sure what she saw because we are allowed to open site that contains multimedia content as long as it's work related. I refused to sign the disciplinary action because I felt that they have no clear basis for the decision therefore the other 2 sups/witnesses sign on my behalf. Since this will still be included on my HR file, what is the best course to dispute it? Should I go to legal process or just talk to HR? What if they refuse to retract the decision? The sanction is just for final written warning and not termination with a 6 months clearing period yet this will affect my eligibility to applying different deparment for career growth and also my yearly bonus.

Thank you,
Sap guy

since your concern is regarding your career growth within the same company, i would advise you to just clarify with HR and take no further action. even if you win a complaint with NLRC this will definitely impact your career negatively
