Parañaque employees get 13th month pay
The Parañaque city government has started the distribution of the 13th month pay of its employees as early as Nov. 22, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.
The early distribution of the 13th moth pay is part of Mayor Eric Olivarez’s pledge to help ease workers’ difficulties arising from the current economic downturn.
The 13th month pay, equivalent to one month’s full salary, is part of the financial windfall that city government employees are set to receive during the Christmas season.
“We are happy to announce that we have started crediting the 13th month pay of our regular and casual employees to their bank accounts.” Olivarez said. “This should help assure them and their families of a happy Christmas season.”
Aside from the 13th month pay, all city government personnel, including job order employees, will also receive a cash gift of P5,000 starting on the first week of December.
This marks the first time that job order employees are getting a P5,000 cash gift. In previous years, they only received P3,000.
Regular and casual employees are likewise entitled to a productivity bonus of P5,000 each by the third week of December.
Parañaque City is among the most financially stable local government units in the country, allowing it to release benefits to employees and constituents early.
