It should be paid out within "reasonable time" - ask them about the normal time frame.
If the wait time exceeds what they say, make a follow-up. If they cannot give a valid reason for the delay, you may wish to file a complaint.
I am one of the many BPO veterans out there, I have a few questions for the moderators, HRpractitioners, and legal counsels about the specifics of "reasonable time" if this is the case..
09/18 - girlfriend and I worked for the same BPO company, her clearance was completed after her resignation earlier the same month;
09/20 - my clearance was completed, and I will quote the fine line of "..within 60 days to release the backpay" which is initially fine, however..
10/30 - girlfriend got her last pay, and until now I have no idea about the whereabouts of my backpay as the liason in charge is no longer responding to my emails. can this already warrant me to go to nlrc to file appropriate charges?..is this enough probable cause to sue my company, or if there are other suggestions that you can advise amidst all the email follow ups that i have been doing to reach out before I take this elsewhere? lastly, is the company required that upon the release of backpay, provide a breakdown of the amount written in the check?..your professional advise is highly appreciated..thank you
