Jurisprudence on Charges of Abandonment

In evaluating a charge of abandonment, the jurisprudential rule is that abandonment is a matter of intention that cannot be lightly presumed from equivocal acts. To constitute abandonment, two elements must concur:

[1] The failure to report for work or absence without valid or justifiable reason; and
[2] A clear intent, manifested through overt acts, to sever the employer-employee relationship. (G.R. No. 164315. July 3, 2009) <!-- adsense --?
