the benefit is advanced by the employer to the qualified employee, in full, within 30 days from the date of filing of the maternity leave application. The SSS, in turn, shall immediately reimburse the employer 100 percent of the amount of maternity benefit advanced to the female employee upon receipt of satisfactory proof of such payment and legality thereof.
My questions are:
1. What are the repercussions if employers do not follow such policy?
2. Is there a way for me to demand for that advance payment if my employer will stand on their decision not to pay me in advance? It's been more than a month now since I filed for my ML.
