Almirante: When to award separation pay

RESPONDENT Ma. Realiza S. Tanguin, a billing supervisor, filed a complaint against petitioners Claudia’s Kitchen, Inc. and Enzo Squillantini questioning her preventive suspension for allegedly forcing her co-employees to buy silver jewelry from her during office hours and inside the company premises. She alleged she was barred by a security guard from entering the company premises.

The Labor Arbiter (LA) ruled that her preventive suspension was justified and that she was not illegally dismissed. The petitioners were, however, ordered to pay her unpaid salary.
