Security agency in Region 8 voluntarily pays P187,296 in labor inspection case

By Virgilio Doroja

Tacloban City (May 14) -- The Lockheed Detective & Watchman Agency, Inc. voluntarily settled and paid its twelve (12) security guards the total amount of P187,296 in a labor inspection case before the DOLE Southern Leyte Field Office. The twelve security guards received an average of P15,808 each.

Upon payment of the above-mentioned findings of underpayments by the DOLE Inspectorate, DOLE Regional Director Forter G. Puguon issued an Order dated April 16, 2010 considering the case closed and dropped from its calendar of cases.

The labor inspection case stemmed from a complaint of two Security Guards of Lockheed Detective and Watchman Agency assigned at the Liloan Ferry Terminal, Philippine Ports Authority, in Liloan, Southern Leyte for underpayment of the minimum wage, 13th month pay, night shift differential pay, holiday pay and service incentive leave pay.

Chief Labor and Employment Officer Fe Norma Valuis, head of the DOLE Southern Leyte Field Office, recommended to Regional Director Puguon the immediate conduct of an inspection at the said workplace/establishment.

Accordingly, Puguon issued an Authority to Inspect to Security Officer & Labor Inspector Francisco Segovia directing him to immediately conduct inspection on May 13-15, 2009 of the Security Agency at the Liloan Ferry Terminal, Philippine Port Authority in Liloan, Southern Leyte. The inspection resulted in findings of underpayment of the minimum wage, 13th month pay, night shift differential pay, and non-payment of holiday pay and service incentive leave pay, with final amount of P187,296.

Interviewed about the recent case, Director Puguon said the Lockheed Detective and Watchman Agency deserves to be commended for voluntarily settling its obligations to its employees/security guards. (PIA) [top]
