Related to this question: Can I disclose my company's financial troubles when applying for new jobs (UK)?
But I am asking for a Philippine standpoint. If I am allowed to, if it is generally in poor taste, etc.
Basically, I am leaving because they could not pay me consistently, and are ignoring some of my messages besides. So now I am job searching.
Though Philippine law lets employees go of their contract obligations with their employer if employer could not pay consistently, hiring managers generally view applicants with prematurely-finished contracts with suspicion. That's why I am looking for a job below radar, at least until my contract ends or if I see a compelling, emergency reason to leave.
If I am not allowed to disclose to my prospective employers about the payroll issues of my would-be former employer, can I say something like?
I love the work environment with [company], I love the culture, the challenge in solving problems. However, my needs have increased (which is true, I am racking up debt trying to live), and their compensation package sadly falls short of my expectations.
