Salary must be computed for 22 days or 30 days?

I have my friend which was my boss before and he will give me the balance of the salary. I actually gave him the actual and exact computation then I was shocked that he will compute that on 30 days? I mean what the? Meaning he will compute that including the weekends like Saturday and Sunday? Good thing he already changed his mind on following my request for doing it as 22 days only but what made me angry was his computation was really wrong to the extent that the March 23 to April 30 he made it as 1 month subtracted to my 5 days absent. Considering that March 23 to April 23 is only 1 month and there are 5 days left. Until now it makes me mad at him and when my boyfriend knew about this he is about to say that I should tell him he is that so dumb not to compute the salary well. But then I am still in control of saying foul languages against him but it really reflects of how come his company failed to the extent that his partners just left him on the air. I just realized one thing that the financial manager left I think it is because of the computations. If I am also one of them maybe I will do the same thing knowing my boss is like that who fonds of fooling other people.

Hey relax. I can say that your boss is really dumb at computations. He/she should have admitted his weakness on mathematics for him to save his company. Perhaps, his pride dictates to insist on his computation. hehehe! Although, Basic salary x 30 days is beneficial to you. Of course, that is not the proper formula.

Well I actually recomputed the 30 days and yes it is more beneficial but knowing him he is stingy then I won't bother his 45 pesos difference. What urks me most is that he made the 37 days as 1 month then he made it as equivalent into promised salary. I don't know how dizzy he was but then I already sent him my text messages of how come he made my 1 month and 5 days remaining as 1 month? He even argued to me that I must read email then I gave him rebuttal that how come he let me signed his quit claims that he paid me for 20,000? Where is that computation came from then he told me that he will make a double check.

Opppps! Never sign that quit claim my friend. If I were you, you better go to the DOLE for a mediation if he insist on his own formula. Let him realize that he is not doing the right thing, so go to the DOLE and they will be the one to teach him the proper computation. It is just a mediation anyway, so do not worry. Unless, you want the matter to be filed as a complaint, then go to the NLRC. But, I suggest that the matter should be dealt with mediation for now to give him a lesson.

Thanks for the advise as well and actually I was about to make complaints although I just ask for legal advise first since I don't really want to file a complain they just told me to give them a demand letter that will contradict to quit claims. But the problem is the company and office is now close so no one will receive it. The Integrated Bar of the Philippines and the NLRC just told me that never sign quit claims unless that cash is in your hand. Not to mention the company is not even legal. The NLRC told me it is too late to complain about it since they can't inspect that anymore.

Wait, wait I am confused... So he gave you a salary equivalent to 30 days instead of 22, and you are mad? Didn't you realize he was actually giving you more money?

well yeah I was wrong about it but then knowing him that he is stingy so I would offer the 45 pesos excess to him. What makes me mad is that he made the wrong computation last night. He made the 1 month and 5 remaining days as in 1 month like there are 37 days in one month or I am suppose to be present of 35 days in a month.

This is wrong to fool someone and especially if they are employees who work for the advancement of the company, they should be feeling secure secure enough to be able to work properly and be more productive so I think the 22 days are very good and in most companies it is like this now.

At first when I knew they are having problems already then I gave my sympathy to him and not to live him. So by the time he was looking for investors I am even finding as well and ask anyone even my friend that is actually a popular celebrity. But now with his computations that he has given to me then it really reflects of what kind of conflict they had even though I don't really know their exact problem to each other. What sinks me was the financial manager that was the first one decided to back out as one of investors or business partner but then unfortunately I haven't known him yet.

He actually included the holidays especially the holy week. I already asked him to ask help from accountant to have the re-computation of my salary or to consult other people so that he would be sure. And yeah I have my boyfriend though who was the first one who has a violent reaction against my boss.

I didn't exactly get what you mean. Remember that the Sundays , sometimes the Saturdays , are not included in counting the number of days worked. What matters most is the number of days worked should be counted correctly.

That is actually what I did and I told him to ask help from accountant so that he will be sure as well.

Why is there confusion? Are you paid on a daily basis? If you are paid on a monthly basis, whether its 22 or 30 days, it does not matter when computing your remaining pay. One month's pay is one month's pay, whether probationary or regular. if you are paid on a daily basis, then you are paid for the number of days you actually worked. I would suppose you are referring to calendar 2010. If so, Apr 23 is a Friday, then the working days for the following week is 26-30, which would be your 5 days of absence. In this respect, your boss' computation is right.

Actually the supposed to be present of my work is 2 months and 5 days or let us say 2 months or 1 week. I have my 5.5 absent so let us say that I really worked for him for exactly 2 months only. The problem with him when he computed the salary he included the 5 days into 1 month which he thought that was the actual salary then deducted into my 5.5 days of absence. If you disregard the 5.5 days since that is my absent then the salary would actually turn into the exact of my 2 months salary rather than deducting it into 3000 pesos.
