OROQUIETA CITY, Misamis Occidental-The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE)-X through its Provincial Field Office (PFO) in Misamis Occidental conducted a 15-minute Single Entry Approach (SEnA) case settlement in the amount of P50,000.
The SEnA conference facilitated by Desk Officer Lorraine M. Roa to the respondent, and complainant-employee Mario D. Bongcawil was settled immediately on its first conference scheduled, September 21.
The complainant who was a caretaker of the respondent’s agricultural land for 9 years filed a request for assistance on the claim of underpayment of wages, non-payment of 13th month pay and separation pay.
He disclosed that he knew he was underpaid with his P100 per day since the beginning of his employment but he did not bother to complain as he was already thankful that they were able to have a place to stay despite the difficulties in life.
“Siyam ka tuig nami sa akong pamilya gapuyo sa iyang yuta, mao ra pud among gisaligan pang-adlaw-adlaw akong kita pero nahiubos ko pag-ayo nga kalit rami gipahawa kay naa na kuno mupalit adtong yutaa,” Bongcawil said.
Bongcawil, who is already 60 year old who fathered six children, said he felt very depressed from the directives of the owner, much more when he was rejected when he first confronted the former for his monetary entitlement, thus, opted him to request for assistance from DOLE.
In the course of the discussion during the conference, the complainant demanded an amount of P100,000 for all his monetary claims.
However, the respondent requested to decrease it to P50,000 in which the complainant immediately agreed and accepted the cash. It was a 15-minute peaceful conference.
Despite COVID-19 pandemic, DOLE-X MisOcc PFO Chief Leonardo G. Rodrigo continuously extends public assistance to all employers and employees in the conduct of SEnA conferences as stated in Department Order No. 214, Series of 2020 or the Guidelines on Processes and Proceedings before the Office of the Secretary of Labor and Employment, Bureau and Regional Offices in areas under Community Quarantine.
Rodrigo said the office strictly observes all the minimum health and safety standards as prescribed by the Department of Health (DOH) through Oroquieta City Health Office and the COVID-19 Inter-Agency Task Force of the local government unit (LGU).
To minimize face-to-face contact among the requesting and responding parties, the SEnA conference shall be conducted through video conferencing or through teleconferencing, whichever is applicable or in case of non-availability of digital platforms, just like the case of Bongcawil, face-to-face conference may be allowed in accordance with the IATF safety and health protocols.
SEnA is a 30-day mandatory conciliation-mediation services mandated under Department Order No. 107, Series of 2010 for all labor and employment cases. SEnA provides speedy, inexpensive and accessible settlement procedure for all complaints arising from employer-employee relationship. (DOLE MisOcc/PIA10)
