    How was your request?

One Covid Allowance

Requested from DOH by J. Guevarra at 07:16 PM on May 27, 2022.
Purpose: Are Employers allowed to hold our One Covid Allowance?
Date of Coverage: 01/01/2022 - 01/31/2022
Tracking no: #DOH-947545196681

Guevarra 07:16 PM, May 27, 2022

Hi, I would like to ask for advice on what we should do as healthcare workers at a Private Primary Hospital. We have been catering to Covid-19 Positive patients since the start of the pandemic. We are well aware that our One Covid Allowance has been released for almost a week now but our Employer will not release the alloted OCA. Our employer is making us wait for days now and will only release it under their circumstances. They also decided upon themselves to deduct certain amounts on my other colleague's OCA. Is that allowed? We are worried that we will not recieve the correct OCA. Thank you
