“Granting a year-end gratuity pay to these workers is well-deserved recognition of their hard work.”
President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday finally approved the gratuity pay for the job orders and contractual employees.
Duterte granted a maximum of P2,000 gratuity pay under Administrative Order No. 2 signed on January 31.
"Granting a year-end Gratuity Pay to these workers is a well-deserved recognition of their hard work," AO 2 said.
Among of these workers which can receive the gratuity pay: national government agencies, state universities and colleges, government-owned or -controlled corporations (GOCCs), and government financial institutions (GFIs).
According to the report, 'those who have rendered services for at least four months, total or aggregated, as of December 15, 2016 will receive a one-time gratuity pay of at most P2,000.'
Workers who have rendered services for less than four months on the same period will receive one-time gratuity pay not exceeding P1,000 provided that their contracts were still effective at the time.
