CEBU, Philippines - The Mandaue City Council has approved on first reading the ordinance granting the midyear bonus of its almost 1,000 government employees in time for the opening of classes this June.

Councilor Nenita Ceniza-Layese, who authored Ordinance No. 46-2017, said the midyear bonus is given to help the employees with their children‘s enrollment and other expenses in school.

Layese said the midyear bonus will be charged against the yearend bonus account of the city government.

Under Budget Circular 2017-2, the midyear bonus, which is equivalent to the salary of employees for one month, should be given starting May 15.

Regular, casual or contractual, appointive or elective and full or part-time employees in the executive, legislative, judiciary, constitutional commissions and offices, state universities and colleges as well as government-owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs) covered by the compensation and position classification system are entitled to the bonus.

Only personnel who have rendered at least a total or an aggregate of four months of service starting July 1 last year and obtained a satisfactory performance rating are eligible to receive the bonus. (FREEMAN)
