Just Cause, Philippines Style

Philippines_flag Employees in the Philippines can be terminated only for cause. Philippine law apparently provides for two broad categories, those based on defalcations by the employee and those based on economic motives. There are separate "due process" procedures that must be followed depending on the motives.
