SENA helps OSY get money claims for her education


Through the Single-Entry Approach (SENA), an Out-of-School Youth set to go back to school received her money claims in one day. 

This was the report of the La Union Field Office of the Department of Labor and Employment-Regional Office I to Regional Director Nathaniel V. Lacambra on February 20, 2018. 

Edralyn Guerrero, 20 years old, filed her request for assistance on February 19 with the DOLE-LUFO against her former employer, a cooperative based in Quezon City. 

With the assistance of SENA Desk Officer Delia Chan, both parties came up with an amicable settlement of Edralyn’s unpaid salary and pro-rated 13th month pay amounting to P4,965.99. 

“It might be a small amount, but to someone like me who is working hard to save for her schooling, this means a lot. Thank you very much, DOLE,” Edralyn said. 

After her third year on her BS Hotel and Restaurant Management course, Edralyn had to stop her schooling because her parents could no longer support her studies. She decided to work so she could earn for her education. She intends to return to school next school year. 

Meanwhile, the Western Pangasinan Field Office reported that for January, it was able to settle all its requests for assistance, benefitting 15 workers with P124,569.91 monetary awards. 

The SENA is an administrative approach which requires covered labor issues to be subjected to 30-day mandatory conciliation-mediation to enable parties to arrive at amicable settlement.  Its purpose is to offer speedy, impartial and efficient remedy to the parties in resolving their conflicts before these become full-blown labor disputes which are more taxing and costly.
