Rodriguez v. Gerontas Compania De Navegacion

decided.: June 25, 1958.

FRANCISCO RODRIGUEZ, LIBELANT-APPELLEE-APPELLANT,
v.
GERONTAS COMPANIA DE NAVEGACION, S.A., RESPONDENT-APPELLANT-APPELLEE, AND THE GERONTAS, HER ENGINES, TACKLE, BOILERS, ETC., RESPONDENT.



Before HAND, HINCKS and MOORE, Circuit Judges.

Per Curiam.

On both the appeal and the cross-appeal we affirm on Judge Dawson's opinion below, reported at 150 F.Supp. 715, with the following correction as to one minor point raised by the respondent's appeal.

On the subject of vacation pay, counsel stipulated that if any vacation pay was recoverable under the applicable law the proper measure was one day of pay for every thirty days worked. On this basis libelant computed that $153.53 was due. Judge Dawson found that there was money due for vacation pay and accepted libelant's figure as the proper amount. However, in discussing the subject of vacation pay, Judge Dawson inadvertently cited as authority an obsolete section of the Panamanian Labor Code, Article 170, which provided for vacation pay at the rate of one day's pay for each eleven days worked. It is quite clear that the figure awarded is correct: only the citation of Article 170 was incorrect.
