This is question about Philippines labor law.
Force leave or floating status is putting an employee for a specific amount of time away from work because of circumstances like no project or disaster.
However, this can be illegal if an employee is put on force leave for:
- More than 6 months. Which basically the employee is terminated and will be given severance pay.
- Force leave done in bad faith.
So my question is, what would be characterize as bad faith?
