San Miguel Corporation has recently been ordered by the National Labor Relations Commission seventh division to pay its former forklift operator, dismissed about 15 years ago, of P1, 487, 266 instead of the original amount P5, 794,025 ordered by an executive labor order arbiter of.
In its order dated March 22, 2011, a copy of which was furnished the DAILY STAR by SMC’s lawyer Roberto Leong yesterday, the NLRC 7th division modified the October 18, 2010 order of Executive labor arbiter-Designate Rene Eñano ordering SMC to pay Eduardo Teodosio for his “illegal termination”.
Court records show that on September 5, 1991, Teodosio was hired by SMC as a casual forklift operator in its Bacolod brewery until March 1992 and was rehired for the same position in 1992, for five to six months and, after three weeks, he was again hired as a forklift operator until August 1993.
