The employee was hired as a security guard by the employer, a security service provider. After inquiring from the employer’s client whether their backwages were already paid to the employer, he was allegedly relieved from his post and never given another assignment. In exchange for paying his money claims, he was allegedly instructed to copy in his handwriting the resignation letter provided to him. A day after receiving the meager amount of Php5,000.00, he filed for illegal dismissal.
