The midyear bonus of the more than 5,000 regular Quezon City Hall employees will be ready for release before the opening of classes for schoolyear 2015 – 2016, the QC government has announced.
In a memorandum circular issued April 6, Mayor Herbert M. Bautista directed the city budget, accounting and treasury departments to release all available funds needed for the payment of the benefits, which he said must be given to the employees not later than May 30.
The mid-year bonus is equivalent to one-half of the employee’s monthly basic salary plus the one-half of the P5,000 cash gift. The remaining half of each will be given to the employees in November.
Covered by the incentive are all elective and appointive regular city-paid personnel who have rendered at least four months of service to the QC government, inclusive of leaves of absence with pay from January 1 to April 30, 2015.
Personnel who are employed on a part-time basis are also entitled to said benefits, corresponding to the salary he is presently receiving and a pro-rata amount of the cash gift, provided they have rendered the minimum four-month service requirement.
Employees with pending administrative cases who qualify otherwise, shall also be entitled to these benefits provided that they are not on suspension or preventive suspension as of the cut-off date for the submission of names to the city personnel office, which will oversee the payroll preparation.
Mayor Bautista said the grant of the benefits, which is made in pursuant to pertinent budget circulars issued by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), will be instrumental in helping parents cope with the various school expenses of their children who will be enrolling this schoolyear.(Maureen Quiñones, PAISO)
