Jobert Sucaldito, a Talent manager/radio host has filed an illegal dismissal complaint against DZMM following issue with Nadine Lustre.
Jobert has reprimanded Nadine on his radio program Showbuzz. This was after the actress slammed the entertainment columnist Ricky Lo who confirmed her breakup with James Reid. Because of that, the columnist received bashing from the JaDine fans.
Jobert has defended Ricky on his show that did not sit well with the fans. It also gets the attention of the ABS-CBN News Chief Ging Reyes. She stated on her Twitter post that the management will address this program.
Jobert Sucaldito posted on his Facebook account ranting against the radio station for suspending him without pay and it was indefinitely.
Based on the report of PEP, it has been 2 months since he was suspended. In line with that, he filed a case against the management of DZMM, together with Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, the radio host went to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
Here is the statement of Atty. Topacio;
“Sinabi ko sa kanila na i-reinstate si Mr. Sucaldito within ten days. Kasi, alam niyo, ang indefinite suspension is tantamount to constructive dismissal. Ibig sabihin, hindi man gamitin yung term na dismissal, parang tinanggal ka na rin. Kasi, hindi mo alam kung ibabalik ka, kung kailan ka ibabalik. Pagkatapos, ang masaklap pa nga rito, suspension without pay, hindi naman puwedeng indefinite yun. That’s not fair, kasi may kontrata siya na kare-renew lang niya nung January. It’s a year contract.”
Jobert stated that what happened really hurt him is that he tried to follow orders such as apologizing just to appease the fans. But the management could have addressed the issue more properly because after all, they are Kapamilya.
