Let’s admit it, we work hard to be able to earn money and provide the needs of our family, however, not all of us are lucky enough to have met a generous and law-abiding employer who comply with all the rules in terms of employment.
We all know that there is no such thing as perfect job nor a perfect employer, but when our bosses treat us fairly with respect and dignity, then we could say that we almost landed a perfect job regardless of the salary or work hours required.
But just imagine landing in a job where your boss does not treat you fairly and does not give you the rightful salary that you should earn? I bet you will all agree that this will be the worst job that you could ever have.
Just like the ordeal faced by two laundry shop employees who seek the help of veteran broadcaster Raffy Tulfo to complain about their employer who is not giving the right salary mandated by law.
According to Agnes and Rodesa Icao – employees of Nice Hotel laundry service, their employer is only giving the P300 per day salary for working for almost 12 hours, a clear violation of labor law.
On top of that, Agnes and Rodesa revealed that the company is also not giving them overtime pay and holiday pay. One of them was also recently terminated by their boss after the two of them had an argument.
When the program contacted Nice Hotel Mandaluyong Branch Sector Head Reynold Zenarosa, Tulfo reminded him that they should be aware that minimum wage earner should now get at least P512 daily salary for an 8-hour job.
Zenarosa explained that prior to hiring the two employees, they had an agreement that the company will provide their board and lodging as part of their job.
The agreement also includes deducting the lodging rent and utility bills on their salary which computation will be upon request to their Human Resource Department.
Because of this explanation, Tulfo slammed the employer’s representative and said that according to Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), stay-in employees who get to enjoy free board and lodging from the employer should be part of their benefits or incentives and should not be deducted from their salary.
Tulfo suggested both parties to just settle the problem with the help of DOLE so everything will be properly documented.
Agnes and Rodesa said that they no longer want to work with Nice Hotel anymore and just want to be able to receive their back pa before finally resigning.
