The National Labor Relations Commission in Bacolod City has declared the dismissal of Sulpicio Lagarde as general manager of the Central Negros Electric Cooperative illegal, and ordered his reinstatement without loss to seniority rights and other benefits.
In his 56-page decision, NLRC Bacolod Labor Arbiter Henry Tañoso also ordered Ceneco and its board members, who approved the resolution terminating Lagarde, to pay him P2,065,42.37 in back-wages, 13 th month pay, moral and exemplary damages, and attorney's fees.
Respondent board members Arnel Lapore, Michael Maravilla, Paul Lizares, Joyce Martha Cuenca, Zenaida Lacson, Vicente Tan and Robert Javellana, who approved Board Resolution No. 10969, were held solidarily liable with Ceneco for the amount adjudged in favor of Lagarde.
A boarder died and two others, one a foreigner, were injured when fire hit the Misa Apartment in Purok Maya, Barangay 16 in Bacolod City, at 2 a.m. yesterday.
Michael Bireal, 39, who was a trisikad driver, was trapped and burned as the only exit for him was the area where the fire started, Fire Officer 3 Marc Stephen Trajeras, investigator of the Bacolod Bureau of Fire Protection, said.
