G.R. No. 228320, July 15, 2020
In 2005, AITI hired Borre as a company driver. AITI’s Leisure Team requested for the services of a company driver but Borre refused to drive.
Prior to the above-cited incident, Borre also refused to drive for executives on 3 instances. The management gave Borre notice and opportunity to formally explain himself. Borre generally denied the allegations. During the investigation and hearings it was found that Borre failed to drive because he left his drivers license.
Borre was dismissed from employment for will disobedience.
The Labor Arbiter found Borre to be validly dismissed based on just cause. The NLRC affirmed the Labor Arbiter’s factual findings.
