DOLE resolves 82 cases of violation of Labor Code in 2011

by Rosalita B. Manlangit

DAET, Camarines Norte, Jan 8 (PIA) The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) provincial office here has resolved a total of 82 cases of violation of labor code filed by workers against their employers for 2011.

Chief labor and employment officer Ruben L. Romanillos said that of the 82 cases, 13 were not pushed through by workers, five were endorsed at the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC), and 64 were resolved through the Single Entry Approach (SENA).

Romanillos added that some 91 workers were also given monetary benefits based on the cases filed at the DOLE.

He said that there was only one decrease in the cases of violation of labor code last year with 82 compared to 83 violation cases in 2010.

The SENA is a new technique in solving labor dispute by the DOLE within 30 days through conciliation and mediation.

The notice of strikes and lockouts are still in the hands of National Conciliation and Mediation Board (NCMB) and not through SENA, he clarified.

He cited that those violations against labor code include the non-payment of separation pay, illegal deductions, non-payment/underpayment of wages, refund of cash bond, non-payment of overtime, illegal dismissal and the non-payment of 13th month pay.

For the first days of January this year they were able to record three violations against labor code filed by workers against their employers.

The three cases were the non-payment of 13th month pay and bonus which are required under Presidential Decree No. 851 or the 13th Month Pay Law where all employees or workers who work for at least one month of the calendar year should received the said benefits. (MAL/RBM-PIA Camarines Norte)
