Hi! I would like to ask for  clarifications on provision on newly-hired employee under Item No. 9.1 of Budget Circular No 2018-01 "if expected to render services for at least six (6) months for the rest of the year."  Should the employee need to render another 6 months after complying with the 1st 6 months or from the date of release of the allowance?

And those who were hired between January 1-July 31 eligible to claim? Thank you.

Dear Racquelyn Jovero,

Greetings!

Thank you for your request dated Aug 26, 2022 10:02:25 AM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your Request

You asked for Clarification on provisions on newly-hired employee under Item No. 9.1 of Budget Circular  (BC) No 2018-01.

Under BC No. 2018-1. a newly-hired employee may qualify to the grant of 
Uniform/Clothing Allowance (U/CA) only after rendering 6 months of service, and if expected to render services for at least 6 months for the rest of the year.

To expound, there are 2 conditions for a newly-hired employee to qualify to the grant of U/CA on the first year of employment: (i) the employee has rendered 6 months of service, and (ii) the employee is expected to render another 6 months of service for the rest of the year.  If the employee has complied with the first condition but not with the second one, he/she shall be included in the grant of the U/CA on the following year, if still in the service. 

Thank you.

Respectfully,
