SSS Assistant Vice President for Operations Legal Department Renato Jacinto Cuisia said that Dr. Joel C. Mendez, owner of the Weigh Less Center located at Farmer's Plaza in Cubao, was sentenced to a jail term ranging from six years and one day as minimum to seven years as maximum.
"The court also directed Dr. Mendez to pay SSS a total of P1,865,657.50 representing unpaid contributions from October 2011 to January 2013 with an interest of three percent per month from July 2015 until full payment. "We gave Mendez a chance since he expressed willingness to have an out-of-court settlement but he failed to comply within the alloted period. As much as we want to help him, we have a primary obligation to ensure that SSS premiums are paid so that the employees will get the benefits they deserve," said Cuisia. The accused Mendez posted bail amounting to P24,000 for his provisional liberty. When Mendez and his counsel failed to appear in the scheduled hearings despite due notice, the court forfeited the cash bond and issued a warrant of arrest.
