13 Flores, et al. v. Funenaria Nuestro, et al., 160 SCRA 568, 572 [1988].

14 Santos v. NLRC,154 SCRA 166, 171,172 [1987].

15 Ibid., See also Medina v. CBS, 222 SCRA 707 [1993].

16 Escareal v. NLRC, 213 SCRA 472 [1992].

17 See Callanta v. Carnation, Phil., Inc., et al., 145 SCRA 268 [1986].

18 In Pepsi Cola v. NLRC, et al., 247 SCRA 386 [1995], an employee filed a leave of absence for one day after he suffered stomachache. Upon the advice of the doctor he took a rest for 25 days without prior leave. When he reported for work, he was told he had been dismissed for being absent without leave. It was held that while he was at fault, the employee could not be dismissed. He was ordered reinstated but he was denied back wages.

Also in the case of Yupangco Cotton Mills, Inc. v. NLRC, after finding that the employee was illegally dismissed but finding him guilty of misconduct the Court finds no grave abuse of discretion in the resolution of the NLRC meting the penalty of suspension only without backwages. (G.R. 94156, 30 July 1990, First Division, Minute Resolution).

Similarly, the dismissal of an employee of a mining firm who was apprehended for stealing ores with high gold content was considered drastic and unwarranted considering that he had rendered twenty three years of service without previous derogatory record and he was prematurely suspended during the pendency of the case; reinstatement without backwages would serve the ends of justice. (Itogon Suyoc Mines, Inc. v. NLRC, 117 SCRA 532 [1982].
