Former employer, signatory bank account, Pagtanggi pagpirma withdrawal slip

This person has chosen to hide his/her identity.

Tama po ba ang ginawa kong pagtanggi sa pagpirma sa withdrawal slip ng dati kong pinapasukan? Kami po kasi ng manager ko ang signatory para sa account name ng kompaya. Kaya lang po ay nag resign na ako nung Dec. 31, 2014. May karapatan po ba siya na ako ay pilitin? Pinangangalagaan ko lamang ang aking sarili na ma involve pa sa usaping pera gayong wala na ako sa kompanya.

Translation: Am I doing the right thing in refusing to sign the withdrawal slip by my former employer? My manager and I are the signatories of the account of my former company. But I already resigned last December 31, 2014. Do they have the right to force me to sign? I am just protecting myself in getting involved in money matters, not that I am not an employee of the company anymore.

Naku, parang si PNP Chief Purisima iyan – suspendido na ay nagco-coordinate pa ng operasyon ng SAF. Kung ang pinapipirmahan sa iyong withdrawal slip ay ang petsa ay iyong wala ka na at resigned ka na sa company, hindi mo na nga dapat pirmahan. Signing a withdrawal slip to withdraw money when you are no longer an employee could get you into a lot of trouble.
