LINGAYEN, Pangasinan – The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP), in its special session held on May 16 here approved the appropriation of Php4,000 financial assistance to each job order (contractual) employee and consultant in the provincial government.


Resolution author SP Member Angel M. Baniqued, Jr. said “the provincial government has appropriated for them funds in the form of financial assistance to help them shoulder their expenses during these lean months.”


“The provincial government and its officials find it meritorious to reward also, as a token of their dedicated service, all job order/contractual employees and consultants for their unprecedented efforts and assistance in making Pangasinan always No. 1 in terms of public and civil service,” the resolution reads.


In pursuant to section 468 (a) (1) (viii) of Republic Act No. 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991 provides the SP power to determine the positions and salaries, wages, allowance and other emoluments and benefits of employees in the provincial government.


Meanwhile, Capitol employees with plantilla positions (permanent/co-terminus) will receive their 14th month pay which is equivalent to the non-taxable one month salary as stipulated in Budget Circular No. 2017-2 dated May 8, 2017 released by the Department of Budget Ministry.


The budget circular states that a personnel entitled to mid-year bonus must at least have a ‘satisfactory performance rating’ in the recent rating period.
