SUBJECTS/DOCTRINES/DIGEST:

WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS CASE?

BOTH PARTIES PRESENTED EVIDENCES OF EQUAL WEIGHT. PETITIONER WORKERS PROVED THAT THEY WERE EMPLOYEES. EMPLOYER RESPONDENT PROVED THAT THE PETITIONERS WERE NOT EMPLOYEES. SC RESOLVED THE DOUBT IN FAVOR OF THE EMPLOYEES.

THE WORK OF PETITIONER IS JUST TO TRANSFER RUBBER LUMPS FROM THE BAGOL OR SMALL CONTAINERS ATTACHED TO THE RUBBER TREE TRUNK AND PLACE THEM IN ANOTHER CONTAINER. IT IS HARD TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE EMPLOYER HAS CONTROL OVER THE MEANS AND METHODS OF THE EMPLOYER’S WORK. SUPREME COURT SAID THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE TEST, THE UNDERLYING ECONOMIC REALITIES TEST.
