A Filipina helper didn’t get intimidated by her employer knowing that she is on the right side.
On December 7, Mylene Constantino was fired by her employer and was not given her salary because her employer accused her of stealing a watch and an iPad. Thinking that her employer was just trying to trick her, Mylene called the police for help.
And after five hours of argument, the employer of Mylene was asked to pay $20,000 as a settlement. The OFW successfully cleared her name from such malicious allegations.
According to Mylene, the police helped her by preventing her employers from letting her sign a termination notice against her will, stating that she admits to stealing.
The said notice will also prevent the OFW to get money from her employer after working for more than five years.
Despite the success of Mylene’s claims against her employer, she still took the hard-blow when a prospective employer backed out from hiring her upon knowing of the dispute she had with her previous employer.
The Filipina returned to looking for new employers and also plans to explain her side to the Immigration Department so as to neutralize the misunderstandings that her former boss might have inflicted on her.
She worked for her previous employers for exactly five years and nine months.
