Reinstatement Pending Appeal with Sample Demand for Reinstatement Salaries and Benefits

Reinstatement Pending Appeal with Sample Demand for Reinstatement Salaries and Benefits

Reinstatement, if ordered in a labor case by the Labor Arbiter, is immediately executory even pending appeal. The employer has the obligation to reinstate and pay the wages of the dismissed employee during the period of appeal until reversal by the higher court. (Wenphil Corporation vs. Abing, G.R. No. 207983, April 7, 2014)

Under Article 229 of the Labor Code, “the decision of the Labor Arbiter reinstating a dismissed or separated employee, insofar as the reinstatement aspect is concerned, shall immediately be executory, even pending appeal. The employee shall either be admitted back to work under the same terms and conditions prevailing prior to his dismissal or separation, or at the option of the employer, merely reinstated in the payroll. The posting of a bond by the employer shall not stay the execution for reinstatement.”

Hence, when the Labor Arbiter renders a Decision finding illegal dismissal and in it there is an order of reinstatement, the reinstatement aspect is immediately executory even if the employer appeals the Labor Arbiter’s Decision.

The employee may demand the payment of salaries and benefits due to an employee who should have been reinstated in accordance with the LA order of reinstatement.

For information purposes of parties involved in a suit, below is a sample demand for the payment of salaries and benefits pursuant to reinstatement pending appeal:

To Whom It May Concern:

We are writing in behalf of our client, JUAN DELA CRUZ, regarding the payment of his salary and benefits for the period covering his reinstatement in accordance with the immediately executory decision of the Hon. Labor Arbiter in the NLRC Case No. NCR 12345, to wit:

Respondent Employer is enjoined to REINSTATE the complainant to his former position without loss of seniority rights and other privileges, and to pay his full backwages, inclusive allowances and to other benefits or their monetary equivalent computed from the time compensation was withheld from them up to the time of their actual reinstatement. The reinstatement aspect is immediately executory (even pending appeal). Both the complainant and the respondent company are enjoined to submit a report of compliance within ten (10) calendar days from receipt of this decision.

Accordingly, respondent Employer is held liable to pay the complainant backwages and attorney’s fees equivalent to 10% of the judgment award in aggregate amount of PhP________, broken down as follows:
