Court says it's habitual NEGLECT of duties for employee to fail to submit daily reports on time

Gross negligence under Article 282 of the Labor Code, as amended, connotes want of care in the performance of one's duties, while habitual neglect implies repeated failure to perform one's duties for a period of time, depending upon the circumstances. The employee’s repeated failure to submit his daily coverage reports on time, as well as his failure to submit the doctors' call cards constitute habitual neglect of duties. (G.R. No. 146780)
