I worked for a Chinese POGO IT company for 6 years. I was recently laid off due to REDUNDANCY, we have signed the termination papers + the estimated separation pay from the HR. Now, a week has passed, the company suddenly changed their mind and offered 3-months worth of separation pay opposed to the 6-months (6yrs of service), 13th month, VL and last salary.
They told us that they would lawyer up. Nakapasa at nakakuha na kami ng authenticated Cert of Unemployment from DOLE. We have requested assistance from DOLE na and advised us na i-NLRC na yung issue.
Now I'm wondering and is there a chance ba na matalo kami dito? The labor law was clear as sky for the Redundancy and we have authenticated DOLE certification and signed termination papers na. Are they bluffing and may chance na hindi namin makuha ang separation pay?
Need your advise please.
