Im asking in behalf of my employer, a few months back, an officemate submitted his resignation. unfortunately, on his last 30days work, he applied for 1 week vacation leave, but didnt report back to office after the leave.
After the company assigned a temporary replacement for the task left behind, the guy came back to do turn over, but that was about a month after the supposed leave. My employer consider him AWOL and would not sign his clearance.
The guy demanded the company to release his last pay and stated that DOLE said all monetary entitlement should be release to every resigned employee.
does the employer has the right to withhold releasing the last pay? or can the employer delay release of last pay?
