President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered the grant of hazard pay to all government workers who physically report for duty during the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine, his longtime aide Senator Bong Go said.

Go said that Duterte signed an administrative order, which will be released Monday, authorizing the release of hazard pay to government frontliners who continue their service amid the threat of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

“Let us do what we can to support our government frontliners and other workers on duty. These personnel, who risk their lives during this time, deserve to be recognized and be given proper compensation. They continue to work to protect our families. Let’s do our part to protect theirs,” he said.

According to the senator, the administrative order will allow national government agencies (NGAs), including state universities and colleges (SUCs) and government-owned and -controlled corporations (GOCCs), to grant hazard pay of up to P500 per day to all personnel authorized to physically report for work in the National Capital Region and other local government units (LGUs).

The hazard pay for employees of NGAs, SUCs, and GOCCs will be charged against their own funds.

Hazard pay may also be granted to employees in the Senate, House of Representatives, the Judiciary, Office of the Ombudsman, LGUs, local water districts, and other constitutional offices.
