-versus- NLRC CASE NO. RAB-III 03-1648-09-P


x - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -x


Complainant, through counsel and unto this Honorable Office most respectfully
submits this Reply to Respondents’ Position Paper, thus avers that:

In the Respondents’ Position Paper, they raised the following salient points, thus:


The respondents claim that there exists no employer-employee relationship

between complainant and OPSEC International Group, Inc. They alleged that OPSEC,
which is a corporation, was engaged by MECO, which is a limited partnership, to provide
management services to the latter; that the complainant was an independent consultant
engaged by MECO, who was assigned to OPSEC; That complainant’s engagement,
remuneration and termination are directly dealt and handled by MECO; and that OPSEC
was not a privy to the agreement between MECO and the complainant.

To this, complainant has overwhelming evidence to show that he is an employee

of OPSEC and not MECO, thus:

1. During complainant’s employment with OPSEC, he was

directed to fill up and submit to the company a Banco De Oro signature
card for his payroll ATM-bank account, copy of which is hereto attached
as Annex “A” to form an integral part hereof. It clearly appears from the
signature card that the employer of herein complainant was OPSEC and
that there exists a separate handwritten annotations made either by Leah
Mayamaya or the Bank that the same is intended for OPSEC and a stamp
mark that the same is for “PAYROLL” purposes. It can further be gleaned
from the signature card that the same was witnessed and authenticated by

the Corporate Secretary of OPSEC, Leah Mayamaya.


2. During complainant’s employment with OPSEC, he was

provided with a business card by the company, copy of which is hereto
attached as Annex “B” to form an integral part hereof, where it is clearly
stated that he is an administration officer of OPSEC. The fact that this
business card was provided by the company can be gleaned from the
uniformity of the same with the business card of Hunter D. Haynes, the
Managing Director of OPSEC, copy of which is hereto attached as Annex
“C”. This business card of the Managing Director bears his signature at
the back thereof.

3. The letter dated March 16, 2009 sent by Atty. Mylene Yturralde
Chan, representing to be the lawyer of OPSEC, addressed to the
complainant, copy of which is hereto attached as Annex “D” to form an
integral part hereof. Atty Mylene Yturralde Chan clearly stated in
paragraph 2 of her letter that complainant was an employee of OPSEC.
She further stated in paragraph 3 of her letter that complainant was
separated from OPSEC.

The afore-cited documents clearly established the employer-employee

relationship between complainant and OPSEC.

The respondents, in their desperate attempt to mislead the Honorable Labor

Arbiter into believing that there was no employer-employee relationship between the
OPSEC and the complainant, lengthily discussed the elements for the existence of
employer-employee relationship. Thus, we say:

On the Power to Select and Engage:

It clearly appears from the initial discussion above that it was OPSEC that
engaged the services of the complainant and the latter was made to
perform his assigned task in OPSEC’s business premises at Sarita St.,
Diamond Subdivision, Angeles City.

It is worthy to note that the respondents did not controvert the fact
that the complainant was required to work at Diamond Subdivision,
Angeles City, though they claim that the principal address of OSEC is at
Unit 1116 City Land Shaw Tower Saint Francis Street corner Shaw
Boulevard, Mandaluyong City. In the instant case, they made it appear that
the premises at Sarita St., Diamond Subdivision is the residence of the
Haynes and/or the place of business of MECO (Page 7, para 1.e.
Respondents’ Position Paper). The respondents have the habit of giving
different addresses. In a criminal complaint filed by Matilde Haynes
against Romeo Velasquez, copy of which is hereto attached as Annex “E”,
she stated that her address is Residencia 8888, Penthouse #4, Pearl Drive,
cor. Amethyst Street, Ortigas Center Pasig City. In the document
submitted in the labor Case filed by Rodolfo Madlangbayan, copy of
which is hereto attached as Annex “F”, they stated that the business
address of MECO is Pasig City (Paragraph 13). Should the matter of
venue be the subject of the whims and caprice of the respondents?

Respondents further claim that the complainant was not an

employee but an independent consultant. They even went to the extent of
defining a consultant-as one who provides professional advice on matters
within the field of his special knowledge or training. Even an ordinary
layman would say that there is no need for a special knowledge of training
to be able to perform the task of disbursing cash, which is the true function
of the complainant. We are attaching hereto the work history of the
complainant to prove that he has no special knowledge or training, as the
respondents wanted it to appear, to be considered a consultant. We are
attaching hereto as Annex “G” hereof, an illustration of the Fund Process

of OPSEC for a full understanding of the nature of complainant’s job.


Norman D. Haynes made it appear in his Affidavit that

complainant’s engagement was with MECO and that the nature of the
same was that of consultancy agreement known as Project Participation
Contract. He further alleged that complainant is not entitled to any
remuneration and benefits being regularly granted and enjoyed the MECO
employees. Contrary to these allegations, Annexes “A” to “D” hereof
clearly shows the engagement of complainant by OPSEC. Complainant
has been granted a regular monthly salary of $500, which was eventually
increased to $1,200 and thereafter reduced to half thereof. The
complainant’s nature of employment is entirely foreign to the make belief
project referred to in the affidavit. Norman Haynes further stated in his
affidavit that in the last quarter of 2008, complainant repeatedly signified
his intention or pre-terminating his consultancy agreement and that he pre-
terminated his project participation in October, 2008. Last quarter of a
year is from October to December and the complainant reported for work
only from October 1, 2008 to October 13, 2008 as he went on company
authorized vacation to Jerusalem. In fact, after his vacation, complainant
reported back to work but was not allowed to enter OPSEC’s premises as
certified to by Rodolfo L. Madlangbayan, OPSEC’s security inspector,
copy of which is hereto attached as Annex “H”.

On the Power of Wages

It was definitely OPSEC who paid the complainant’s wages. The

complainant was required to work for OPSEC at its office address at 35-A
Sarita St., Diamond Subdivision, Balibago, Angeles City. Initially,
complainant was made regular monthly wage of $500. On January 1,
2008, complainant’s salary was increased to $1,200 as he was required to
work from 7:00 o’clock in the morning to 6:00 o’clock in the evening.
Upon complainant’s representation that he can no longer work overtime,
his salary from September 8, 2008 was reduced by one half. Complainant
was not paid his salary from October 1, 2008 to October 13, 2008. On top
of this regular monthly wage, OPSEC’s, through its officer undertook an
award of $50,000.00 investment in the company for every year of service,
a fraction of a year shall be considered as one year. This undertaking is
undoubtedly part of the wages to which the complainant is entitled and
which definitely within the jurisdiction and authority of the Honorable
Labor Arbiter to rule upon. All this were upon the instruction, directive,
discretion and business decision of both Norman Haynes and Hunter

Respondent further claim that the $50,000.00 investment in the

company for every year of service which they have undertaken to pay as
part of the complainant’s wages is beyond the capital investment of the
company. We are attaching hereto as Annex “|I” hereof the OPSEC fund
tracking for a period of 6 months, which were furnished unto the
complainant by OPSEC’ s very own accounting staff, Michelle Del Prado.
It clearly appears from the said Fund Tracking the capability of OPSEC to
pay the contracted wages of the complainant.

The unsubstantiated allegations in the Affidavit of Geene F.

Villareal that there is no information or documentation appearing the
complainant was included in the payroll of employees of OPSEC and that
there was no instance that complainant received compensation or
remuneration from OPSEC, do not deserve credence. We must not lose
sight of the BDO Payroll-Bank Account signature card which substantially
established the fact of employer-employee relationship between OPSEC
and complainant.

On the Power of Dismissal


With the letter dated March 16, 2009 sent by Atty. Mylene
Yturralde Chan (Annex “D”) clearly stating therein that complainant was
an employee of OPSEC and was separated there from, it is in fact absurd
for the respondents to state in their position paper that OPSEC, not being
the employer of the complainant, has the power to dismissed the latter. It
is more absurd to say that complainant’s separation was of his own doing.
If it were true that complainant voluntarily terminated his employment,
why would he report back to work on October 25, 2008 after his company
authorized vacation in Jerusalem? Why would they not allow complainant
to enter OPSEC’s premises (Annex “H”)?

In discussing the Power of Dismissal, the respondents mentioned

the $10,000.00 allegedly given by MECO in consideration of
complainants standing in the religious community and allegedly MECO's
help to Complainant’s family and additional contribution in support of any
charitable and religious endeavor complainant (Pastor Horn may do). They
however made contradictory statement as they claimed that the $10,000
was a consideration for releasing MECO from any liability relating to their
make belief consultancy agreement.

The truth is that the money given to complainant were intended and
were entirely used to complete a mission trip that Mr. Hunter Haynes, the
Managing director agreed to fund. Complainant completed the task for
Wildwood Church Ministries which is headed by Norman and Hunter
Haynes. Complainant did in fact receive the funds and upon return sent
receipts to both Norman and Hunter Haynes when the Mission trip was
completed. Incredibly, the Mission trip cost well over the $10,000. Yet
complainant continued to the trip that Mr. Hunter Haynes failed to
continue. Hereto attached as Annex “J” hereof are the documents of
liquidation of the $10,000 funding intended to and spent for the mission
trip project of Wildwood Church Ministries. Complainant agreed to sign
the previously prepared Acknowledgement on the understanding that the
term “Project Participation Contract” stated therein was actually the
Mission Trip to Myanmar and that complainant was made to believe that
the funding for the said project came from MECO. The complainant
cannot think of any project participation with MECO. Thus, he relied on
the representation of the Haynes that the acknowledgement was for the
$10,000 dollars intended for the mission trip to Myanmar and that the
acknowledgement was worded “as full settlement of the promised funding
for the said mission trip to limit the liability of MECO to the said amount.
They further represented that there could be no release of funds unless
complainants signs the acknowledgement, which thus constrained
complainant to affix his signature. It should be noted that there is nothing
in the acknowledgement that states that the $10,000 is intended as
financial assistance to complainant’s family and/or consultancy

What is more revealing is the affidavit of Hunter Haynes attached

as Annex “6” to respondents’ Position Paper. Hunter Haynes speaks of
MECO in his Affidavit, but in the Position Paper, it is alleged that he is
the Managing Director of OPSEC. He never corroborated the allegations
in the affidavit of his very own OPSEC employee Geene F. Villareal. The
declaration coming from the Managing Director of OPSEC relative to
engagement and dismissal of the complainant, whom they claim to be not
an OPSEC employee cast doubt on the truthfulness of the theory they
adverted to.

On The Power of Control

Respondents averred that complainant worked in the premises of

MECO and not OPSEC. This is again contrary to their allegation that

complainant was assigned to OPSEC by MECO. If it were true that


complainant worked within MECO premises, how could they claim that
he was assigned and designated by MECO to OPSEC. Assignment at
OPSEC would necessarily mean working at OPSEC premises.
Complainant was required to work at Sarita St., Diamond Subdivision,
Angeles City, which is therefore the OPSEC premises. We are likewise in
a quandary on what place is the referred MECO premises. Was it the Pasig
City as stated in their registration papers for the alleged partnership and in
Annex “K” hereof, or in Sarita St., Diamond Subdivision, Angeles City,
which in this case is declared to be the address of the Spouses Norman and
Matilde Haynes and /or MECO premises.

Anent complainant’s working hours, the same was set by OPSEC

from complainant’s day 1 until his termination. Complainant was initially
required to work for 4 hours a day plus overtime. His working hours was
adjusted from January 1, 2008 to September 1, 2008 from 7:00 o’clock in
the morning until 6:00 o’clock in the evening. Finally, complainant’s
working hours was reduced from September 1, 2008 with the concomitant
diminution of salary. There was never an instance that complainant was
absent from his work at OPSEC and there was never an instance that
complainant was informed that he was free to accept other engagement
elsewhere. Is this not an exercise of the power of control by the
management? If OPSEC does not have control powers over the
complainant, why was there a need for the management’s approval of the
reduction in the working hours of the complainant? What about the
diminution in complainant’s salary on account of the reduction of his
working time?

Clearly therefore, all the elements of employer-employee relationship between

OPSEC and the complainant are attendant in the instant case. Thus, complainant is
entitled to labor benefits provided by law and the remuneration agreed upon with

Respondents further averred that complainant’s claim for moral damages of

$20,000.00 ‘is not only highly unconscionable but a clear case of extortion’. They even
cited case of PAL vs. NLRC, G.R. No. 132805, February 2, 1999, where it was held that
moral damages are recoverable only where the dismissal or suspension of the employee
was attended by bad faith or fraud, or constituted an act oppressive to labor or was done
in a manner contrary to morals, good customs or public policy. Bad faith does not simply
mean negligence or bad judgment. It involves a state of mind dominated by ill will or
motive. It implies a conscious and intentional design to do a wrongful act for a dishonest
purpose or some moral obliquity. The person claiming moral damages must prove the
existence of bad faith by clear and convincing evidence for the law always presumes
good faith.

All the elements for the grant of Moral damages are attendant in the instant case.
The complainant’s dismissal was attended by bad faith and fraud. Obviously, the reason
for the complainant’s dismissal was to mum him from asking for the grant of labor
benefits to his co-employees at OPSEC. This is obvious in the letter dated March 16,
2009 of Atty Mylene Yturralde-Chan where she claims that her clients reported to her
that complainant have been unofficially communicating negative information to OPSEC
employees and investors with alleged evident intent of undermining the reputation and
good will of OPSEC. Complainant has been falsely accused of extortion, thievery, lying,
gossiping. This bad faith on the part of the respondents continued even after his
termination from OPSEC to the extent of bringing embarrassment to before his own
congregation as they intentionally sent the Letter dated March 16, 2009 to complainant’s
place of Worship instead of his residence. This letter is now forever in the Church books
and minutes and will serve as an eternal scar upon the complainant’s reputation and
service to God. It is worthy to mention that the respondents had acknowledged the good
standing and reputation of the complainant in the religious community, which they had
now tarnished. More so, bad faith on the part of OPSEC is manifested by the fact that
their intention came to the attention of their close management and staff when even Mr.

Jerry Bradford e-mailed the complainant on Sunday, March 29, 2009, copy of the e-mail

is hereto attached as Annex “L” to form an integral part hereof, which states that “I see
Mr. Norman is out to mess you”.

The primordial intention of OPSEC in terminating the complainant is to deprive

him of his earned wages in the form of capital investment of $50,000 per year of service.

This alone would show that complainant is entitled to his claim for moral
damages. Further, complainant’s claim for Attorney’s fees is not pathetic and absolutely
not abusive.

ALL TOLD, the Labor Laws hold no respect of persons due to race, religion, or
even social standing. Laws are enacted in order to protect society and insure equality with
mankind. The intention of the complainant in filing this case is to receive what is due him
in accordance with the provisions of the Labor Code, and nothing more than that.

Respondents, in parting, stated in their Position Paper that “As a matter of

conscience, Pastor Horn should not shout to the high heavens claiming that he was
illegally dismissed from his alleged employment of September 15, 2006 up to October
2008. He knows very well that these statements are untruthful for on September 15, 2006,
OPSEC have not even started its business operation.” Complainant actually does shout
out to the high heavens, which is called prayer that he be granted justice in this case. The
respondents’ boisterous statement along with the overtones presented, is a clear strike at
the complainant’s religious beliefs and practices and intended to sling insults, since this is
the only instance that complainant is referred to as Pastor. This however cannot change
the fact that Mr. Horn was present when Mr. Keith Nichols signed the OPSEC bylaws as
well as the “Amended” Articles of Incorporation on September 11, 2006. It should also
be noted that the SEC Certificate of Incorporation, copy of which is hereto attached as
Annex “M” is dated September 15, 2006, which is the date that Mr. Horn officially began
to work with OPSEC International Group Inc. With this in mind, and as a matter of
conscience, Mr. Horn is still thankful to be able to shout out to the high heavens.

The respondents further commented that the complainant’s acceptance of a

generous amount of Php480,000. 00 should have been more than enough; that at least, the
most Honorable thing for a man to do is to show his gratitude and share such blessings to
others who believe in the goodness of his heart; and that it has been repeatedly held that
"No person should enrich himself at the expense of or prejudice of others.” The purpose
and intention of the $10,000.00 funding had already been discussed above. The
respondents should think a hundred fold before uttering the time honored principle that
"No person should enrich himself at the expense of/or prejudice of others.”

In closing, Complainant pleads unto the Honorable Labor Arbiter to take note that
in the respondents Position Paper, they have condemned the complainant for extortion, no
less than four times, a liar, a person who exaggerates in order to deceive others. In the
Bible, God’s Law Book, God tells us in Titus 3:1-2 “Remind them to be subject to rulers,
to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed to malign no one, to be
peaceable, gentle, showing every consideration for all men”. In line with this,
complainant has presented only the facts not to degrade anyone and left the judgment in
the hands of those more qualified to lay down a decision between the two parties.
Complainant has spent his life loving the Filipino people and has placed the outcome of
this case in the hands of the Honorable Labor Arbiter. Christ is displayed not only to the
ones that we adore, but to our adversaries as well. May Christ be lifted up!

WHEREFORE, premises considered, it is hereby respectfully prayed that the

foregoing Reply to the Position Paper be given due credence and consideration and the
complainant reliefs prayed for in the complaint and position paper be granted.

Other reliefs just and equitable likewise prayed for.
