Permit of the Factory in Valenzuela that Paid Coins as Salary Got Suspended
The Valenzuela City has suspended the permit of the factory that recently went viral for paying a worker with centavo coins as salary.
On Wednesday, Valenzuela City Mayor Rex Gatchalian ordered the suspension of the company’s business authorization for paying employees in centavo coins. He did not believe the incident was an accident, according to him.
“Whether kung sabihing aksidente or hindi, ako sa personal kong pananaw hindi siya aksidente,” ” Gatchalian told Jasper So, owner of Nexgreen Enterprise, during a media conference.
“We were supposed to produce documents, but we’re waiving that, they (Nexgreen Enterprise) are accepting all their mistakes, so they will be suspended officially by today,” he added.
According to Gatchalian, the company was given 15 days to address all of its employees’ issues, including Russel Maoza, who was paid in centavos wrapped in plastic. Failure to do so would result in revocation, but it won’t stop us from pursuing legal action because several labor rules were broken, he said.
The infractions were connected to the Labor Code, mayor’s permit, Civil Code, and non-coverage of the Social Security System, PhilHealth, and Pag-IBIG Fund, according to the document. Gatchalian directed the city’s Workers’ Affairs Office to conduct an investigation into So’s company’s suspected unfair labor practices.
The Workers’ Affairs Office has also submitted a calculation of Maoza’s compensation, which is P55,614.93. Maoza, on the other hand, was given P1,056 in coins. Maoza claimed that his boss was attempting to retaliate by paying his salary in centavo coins.
