SENA facilitates swift settlement of separation pay for construction worker

 

Cabarroguis, Quirino – A construction foreman in Barangay Banuar in this town can finally breath a sense of relief after recently receiving his monetary claims through DOLE’s Sin­gle Entry Approach (SENA).

Mr. Orlando Ancheta came before DOLE -Quirino Field Office (QFO) last October 15, 2020 to file a complaint against his employer on grounds of illegal dismissal. The day after he sought for assistance, a conference was made by the field office with his former employer. After both parties aired their sides, both reached a compromise agreement.

The construction company agreed to pay an aggregate amount of ?25,000.00 representing his separation pay from the company. It was issued through a cheque and was witnessed by DOLE – QFO officers.

Mr. Ancheta was meanwhile glad for the speedy processing of his claim and can now look forward to finding other job opportunities to help him during this pandemic.

Maam, sir, salamat! malaking tulong ito sa akin at sa aking pamilya, maagang pamasko ito sa amin, nakakatuwa lang na kahapon lang ako pumunta para magpatulong, ngayon eto na ako hawak ko na ang tseke,” he stated.

The regional office has so far settled 113 worker complaints for the year, for a 77% settlement rate from a total of 152 complaints received.

The regional office has also disposed 134 of the 152 totals complaints received, for an 88.2% disposition rate.

SENA is a 30-day conciliation-mediation of complaints or labor issues filed by workers in the private sectors against their employers. ###
