Mandaluyong City Mayor Menchie Abalos announced on Monday that the LGU has allocated more than P54 million for the hazard pay of its employees who reported for work during the previous Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) and Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) due to the surge in COVID-19 cases this year, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

“Inanunsyo ni Mayor Menchie Abalos ang inilaan ng Pamahalaang Lungsod na P54.5 milyong budget para sa hazard pay ng mga regular, casual, service contractual, at job order na empleyado ng city hall na kanilang matatanggap na simula ngayong araw (Mayor Menchie Abalos announced that the city government has allocated a total of P54.5 million budget for the hazard pay of regular, casual, service contractual, and job order city hall employees. They will receive the said hazard pay starting today),” the LGU said in a Facebook post.

“Ang bawat araw ay may katumbas na P500 na kanilang ipinasok noong ECQ hanggang MECQ (Marso 27-Mayo 14, 2021) sa bisa ng EO 43, Ordinance 835 at 836, S-2021 (Each day is equivalent to P500 when they reported for work during the ECQ until MECQ (March 27-May 14, 2021) in virtue of EO 43, Ordinance 835 at 836, S-2021),” it added.


The LGU said that Mandaluyong is the very first LGU that gave the corresponding hazard pay to its employees.

Abalos thanked the city’s government employees for giving their best and performing above and beyond their duty especially during this pandemic.

“Most of those who will receive this (hazard pay) are considered frontliners that’s why they deserve it. Their service during this pandemic is considered a huge sacrifice,” she said.

The mayor also thanked the city council as well as the budget and treasury departments for their efforts to allocate the needed budget for the hazard pay of employees since it is not included in the local government’s budget for this year.
