Advice to explain, reading of CBA to dismissed employee NOT compliant with due process

Thus, it could not be enough for his dismissal that private respondent was "advised of his infractions and given the opportunity to explain his side" after he had supposedly "refused to assist in the berthing and unberthing maneuvers," and that when he refused to clean the cargo tank, the "pertinent portion of the CBA on mutual assistance was read to him.' The procedure was far short of the legal mandate. [G.R. No. 105396. November 19, 1996]
