Summary:

This case involves a jurisdictional dispute between the Court of First Instance and the labor arbiters of the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC) over a civil case filed by employees against their employer, the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT). The employees filed a complaint for damages arising from their employer's alleged misconduct and violation of labor laws. The Court of First Instance issued a restraining order against PLDT, which the company sought to have lifted. The main issue in this case is whether the Court of First Instance has jurisdiction over the subject matter of the case or if it falls within the exclusive jurisdiction of the labor arbiters and the NLRC.

Doctrine:

The court determines the jurisdiction of a case based on the nature of the action and the ultimate facts alleged in the complaint. If the case arises from an employer-employee relationship, it falls within the jurisdiction of the labor arbiters and the NLRC. However, if the case is purely civil in nature, it falls within the jurisdiction of the regular courts. The court also clarifies that claims for damages arising from employer-employee relations are now exclusively within the jurisdiction of the labor arbiters and the NLRC, as provided by the Labor Code.
