Filipina Domestic Worker In US Won A P43 Million Worth Case Against Former Employers

Although the court went in favor of the overseas Filipino worker (OFW) who was overworked and underpaid, her former employer has decided to file an appeal, which Alzate and Sayas’ firm is ready to fight.
The couple has since reportedly hired three people to take shifts, doing what Alzate did all by herself.  While Alzate was not paid based on the minimum wage, these new workers are reportedly receiving minimum wage, together amounting to what should’ve been paid to Alzate while she was working.
“The trial court’s judgment in favor of our nanny client is based on good facts and good law.  Make no mistake about it,” said Sayas.  “We will vigorously fight for the worker on appeal.”
Before Alzate’s case, her lawyer recovered $500,000 for two domestic employees and $425,000 for a security guard.

Sayas recovered $500,000 for two domestic employees and $425,000 for a security guard.  Advertisement   Although the court went in favor of the overseas Filipino worker (OFW) who was overworked and underpaid, her former employer has decided to file an appeal, which Alzate and Sayas’ firm is ready to fight.  The couple has since reportedly hired three people to take shifts, doing what Alzate did all by herself.  While Alzate was not paid based on the minimum wage, these new workers are reportedly receiving minimum wage, together amounting to what should’ve been paid to Alzate while she was working.  “The trial court’s judgment in favor of our nanny client is based on good facts and good law.  Make no mistake about it,” said Sayas.  “We will vigorously fight for the worker on appeal.”  Before Alzate’s case, Atty. Sayas recovered $500,000 for two domestic employees and $425,000 for a security guard.

This amount is deemed the highest pure wage claim awarded to a domestic worker.  “The court’s judgment is a victory for Ms. Alzate, especially in the face of a vigorous opposition that did not concede any dime of wages that was owed to her,” said the law firm which represented the Filipina on trial in a press release.  “It was a testament to the courage of this Filipina to have pursued her claims all the way up to the trial,” the law firm stated.  Alzate filed the case and sought to receive what was owed to her by her employers in salary. At that time, she was paid a fixed monthly rate regardless of how long she worked. Alzate said she was made to work 18 to 24 hours a day.  The Domestic Workers Bill of Rights states that domestic workers who worked long hours like Alzate and who are employed to take care of children and the elderly should be given overtime pay.  Alzate began working for Drs. Peter Sim and Lorraine Diego back in 2002. The Pinay worker took care of the couple’s two children who had been diagnosed with autism. Her hourly rate then was a meager $2 which is approximately a hundred pesos today.  Her last salary amounted to $3,000, just half of what she should have gotten based on salary standards during that year.  She was also not given a day off by her former employers. Read More:  Look!
