Another request for assistance filed before the branch was addressed during its initial conference.

Mr. Alex Olitoquit sought the assistance of the branch against Work With Us Human Resource Solution, Inc. on April 27 alleging illegal dismissal.  He was then employed by the company as a Field Credit Assistant at Robinsons Bank Microfinance Baguio City branch.  On April 18, he received a letter informing him of his employment status as his hiring was overruled by the bank’s higher management.

During the conference on May 5, Ms. Marivic Soria, the company’s Managing Director informed the complainant that the bank officials highly recommended him but was revoked due to his lack of educational qualifications. She further indicated that he is not yet a regular employee for he is with the agency for only a month.  Mr. Olitoquit, however, refuted claiming that he is a regular employee as they don’t have an employment contract.  He further stressed that he was not given a 30-day notice.  Appeals from both parties were made until they arrived to a settlement agreement.

SEADO Gabriel P. Bayao facilitated the payment of Thirteen Thousand Three Hundred Forty One Pesos and 66/100 (P13, 341.66) representing unpaid salary, pro-rated 13th month pay, cash bond, gasoline reimbursement and financial assistance.
