    G.R. No. 171984 - Bandila Maritime Services, Inc. and/or Tokomaru Kaiun Co., Ltd. v. Rolando Dubduban

      G.R. No. 171984 - Bandila Maritime Services, Inc. and/or Tokomaru Kaiun Co., Ltd. v. Rolando Dubduban

    PHILIPPINE SUPREME COURT DECISIONS

    FIRST DIVISION

    [G.R. NO. 171984 : September 29, 2009]

    BANDILA MARITIME SERVICES, INC. and/or TOKOMARU KAIUN CO., LTD., Petitioners, v. ROLANDO DUBDUBAN, Respondent.

    R E S O L U T I O N

    CORONA, J.:

    Respondent Rolando Dubduban was engaged by petitioner Tokomaru Kaiun Co., Ltd. and its Philippine manning agent, Bandila Maritime Services, Inc., as chief cook of M/V White Arrow for 10 months.1 He boarded the vessel on November 3, 1998.

    After the expiration of his contract, respondent returned to the Philippines on October 8, 1999. A month later, he had a medical examination at the Metropolitan Hospital in Manila where he was diagnosed with fibroid scarrings in his right upper ear lobe and consequently was advised to undergo parotidectomy.2 Respondent agreed. During the pre-operational procedure, he was found to be suffering from diabetes mellitus type II.

    After recovering from surgery, respondent filed a complaint for disability benefits and damages3 in the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC). He alleged that he could no longer be employed as a seafarer because of his diabetes. Petitioners, being his last employers, were therefore liable to pay him disability benefits and reimburse him for medical expenses.

    Petitioners, on the other hand, pointed out that respondent was diagnosed with diabetes after his contract expired on September 3, 1999. Thus, they were not liable for disability benefits and reimbursement of medical expenses.

    In a decision dated January 3, 2001,4 the labor arbiter5 dismissed the complaint for lack of merit. It held that because respondent was found to be suffering from diabetes only after the expiration of his contract, petitioners were not liable for disability benefits.

    Respondent appealed6 to the NLRC disclosing that he had been previously diagnosed with diabetes in 1994. Noting that respondent did not complain of diabetic symptoms while aboard M/V White Arrow, the NLRC affirmed the decision of the labor arbiter in toto.7

    Aggrieved, respondent filed a petition for certiorari 8 in the Court of Appeals (CA) assailing the decision of the NLRC. He claimed that the NLRC committed grave abuse of discretion in affirming the decision of the labor arbiter. Respondent insisted that the diabetes was an occupational disease.

    The CA noted that since respondent was obliged to taste what he prepared for the officers and crew of the vessel, the nature of his employment therefore aggravated his condition. In a decision dated October 28, 2005,9 the CA reversed and set aside the decision of the NLRC and ordered petitioners to pay, jointly and severally, respondent's disability benefits amounting to US $20,150 or its equivalent in Philippine pesos.ςηαñrοblεš νιr†υαl lαω lιbrαrÿ

    Petitioners moved for reconsideration but it was denied.10 Hence, this recourse.ςηαñrοblεš νιr†υαl lαω lιbrαrÿ

    Petitioners insist that the CA erred in holding them liable for disability benefits. A seafarer may claim disability benefits under Section 20(B) of the 1996 POEA Standard Contract of Employment for Seafarers (Contract) only if he suffers a work-related injury or illness during the term of his contract.

    The petition is meritorious.

    Respondent admitted that he had been previously diagnosed with diabetes in 1994 or four years before he was engaged by petitioners as chief cook of M/V White Arrow. Clearly, he was not afflicted with the said illness only during the term of his contract but even prior to his employment. He did not even complain of any complications of the disease at any time during his employment. Hence, Section 20(B) of the Contract was inapplicable.

    Moreover, even assuming respondent contracted the disease during the term of his contract, he was precluded from claiming disability benefits for his failure to comply with Section 20(B)(3) of the Contract.11 The provision requires a claimant to submit himself to a company-designated physician three days after his arrival in the Philippines for medical examination and failure to do so bars the filing of a claim for disability benefits.12

    Respondent did not submit himself to a company-designated physician for medical examination within three days from his arrival in the Philippines, without any lawful excuse. Respondent's claim (assuming he had a valid one) was therefore barred.ςηαñrοblεš νιr†υαl lαω lιbrαrÿ

    Neither is respondent entitled to disability benefits under Section 32-A of the Contract since diabetes is not one of the compensable occupational diseases listed there. Since his claim has no basis in the Contract, there is no reason to award him disability benefits.

    WHEREFORE, the petition is hereby GRANTED. The October 28, 2005 decision and March 13, 2006 resolution of the Court of Appeals in CA-G.R. SP No. 89211 are REVERSED and SET ASIDE. The October 20, 2003 decision and December 28, 2004 resolution of the National Labor Relations Commission in NLRC NCR Case No. 027873-01 are REINSTATED.
