Is absenteeism a valid cause for dismissal?



“In this case, the only basis of respondents in terminating the services of petitioners is that they incurred absences in 1997, in excess of the allowed number, despite a previous warning for their absences in 1996 and 1995. We find that in this case, termination is not a commensurate penalty. Even assuming that petitioners’ absenteeism constitutes willful disobedience, such offense does not warrant their dismissal.”

—Nelson Zagala and Feliciano M. Angeles VS. Mikado Philippines Corporation, et. al., G.R. No. 160863, September 27, 2006
