‘Pag may tiyaga, may makukuha: QC OKs higher longevity pay for city hall employees
The Quezon City Council has approved an ordinance raising the longevity pay of city hall employees who have career civil service credentials.
Quezon City Ordinance 2835-2019, which was recently signed by Mayor Herbert Bautista, orders a P100 increase in the longevity pay of the employees from the current P300 for every five years of continuous service to the local government.
Regular employees of the Quezon City government who have rendered at least five years of continuous service will benefit from the pay hike.
Employees who have rendered at least 10 years of service but accumulated a year’s worth of leaves are still eligible for the new benefit as long as their leave arose on account of medical and/or grave personal circumstances.
“Such amount as may be necessary for the implementation of this Ordinance is hereby appropriated from the General Fund or Special Fund,” the ordinance states.
