thanks.Godbless

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

hello moderators, lawyers and HRpractioners..

Update from my last night..

At last, my company is asking for a quit-claim to be signed before i-release ung backpay ko, pero walang details nung tax refund (breakdown) on how it came up to that figure. System generated daw yun and it will be requested pa sa outsourced payroll team..Needless to say, i did not sign the quit claim and walked away for the meantime.

wala man lang 2316, or COE na in-iissue, just the check alone..

may legal obligation po ba na magexplain si company before nya papirmahin ng quit-claim si employee?..o common practice lang un talaga?..

maraming salamat po ulet..

No legal obligation, but it is the right thing to do para magkaintindihan pareho at walang agrabyado sa pagbibilang ng halagang natanggap.

Hi atty.
How long should the backpay be released? Is there a law about this. If they haven't met the time frame, can we file a complaint in nlrc?

No law.

What does the company say?

It has to be within reasonable time.

Hi,

I left full-time job to do online work for personal reasons. I got work as online PA for a small company in UK starting October 6, 2014. After end of October, I unfortunately did not receive my salary via PayPal as per contract. After two weeks have passed and many empty promises, the owner finally paid on 14 November, but only gave partial payment. By start of the following week, I have followed up several times on the payment of balance, but nothing has been paid as of this time. This doesn't sit well with me (although, I've remained professional and polite with my communications with them) and so I decided to discontinue my employment and submitted my irrevocable resignation. As of this time, I have not gotten any feedback as to when owner intends to pay; my emails have not been replied to.

I need help on how I can go about this considering that my employer is based in UK. Thank you.
