Pesador receives monetary claims through DOLE’s SEnA
Tacloban City – Through the Single Entry Approach (SEnA) Program of the Department of Labor and Employment, a pesador from Catarman, Northern Samar was able to receive from his employer his monetary claims amounting to fifty thousand pesos (Php50,000.00) last March 4, 2020.
 
Ricardo Demakiling, working for a copra store for fifteen years, lost his interest to report to work and went on absence without leave due to allegations thrown against him which include dishonesty and negative feedback from customers and co-workers. 
 
Demakiling refused to accept the allegations and filed at the DOLE-Northern Samar Field Office (NSFO) in Catarman his SEnA request for assistance (RFA) last March 2, 2020. His RFA includes claims for unpaid wages, overtime pay, separation pay, 13th month pay and social welfare benefits. 
 
Two mandatory conferences on March 4 and 11, 2020 were immediately scheduled by DOLE-NSFO for the said  RFA and both parties were duly notified.
 
Through the efforts of the assigned Single Entry Assistance Desk Officer (SEADO) in conciliating-mediating, both Demakiling and his employer arrived at an agreement and decided to settle the dispute between them. 
 
Both parties thanked DOLE-NSFO for acting as mediator in their labor dispute. Specifically, Demakiling expressed his gratitude to the office for the ease of accessing assistance through the SEnAin settling disputes, noting that he no longer needed to consult a lawyer.
 
“Gusto ko pong magpasalamat sa DOLE dahil natulungan ako sa aking problema sa trabaho. Hindi ako nahirapan at hindi na kelangan pa ng abugado,” said Demakiling.
 
SEnA is an administrative approach to provide a speedy, impartial, inexpensive and accessible settlement procedure for all issues/complaints arising from employer-employee relations to prevent them from ripening into full-blown disputes.
