Duterte approves differential pay to government workers

Duterte approves night shift differential pay to government workers

QUEZON CITY, (PIA) – President Rodrigo Duterte signed a law which grants night shift differential pay to government workers.

Republic Act (RA) No. 11701 ensures government employees who works between 6:00 in the evening and 6:00 in the morning a rate not exceeding twenty percent (20%) of their hourly basic rate.

The new law covers “government employees occupying position items from Division Chief and below, or their equivalent, including those in government-owned or controlled corporations, whether the nature of their employment is permanent, contractual, temporary, or casual.”

This new law notes that the night shift differential pay shall be in addition to and shall not diminish whatever benefits and allowances presently enjoyed by government employees.

Meanwhile, government employees such as the Armed forces of the Philippines (AFP), Philippine National Police (PNP), Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), and other similarities determined by the Civil Service Commission (CSC), and Department of Budget Management (DBM) are not covered by the new law since their services are required 24 hours a day.
