Valenzuela adopts alternative work arrangement
The Valenzuela City government said it adopted an alternative work arrangement for contractual and job order (JO) employees amid the Luzon-wide Enhanced Community Quarantine.
The City Council passed Ordinance No. 676 Series of 2020 otherwise known as the “Alternative Work Arrangement Ordinance” to ensure continuous delivery of government services during the month-long quarantine, as well as to protect the welfare of its contractual and JO employees.
An exception to the “no work, no pay” principle in the course of quarantine period brought by the COVID-19 outbreak, the City Government of Valenzuela maintained a skeletal workforce among its personnel to continue to attend to the crucial needs of its constituents during this time of national emergency.
Workers who will be part of the alternative work arrangement are ensured to receive their salary and wages while they assure the delivery of necessary and essential services to the public.
The COS and JO workers are enjoined to observe the guidelines and measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace by strictly observing social distancing, practicing personal hygiene, regular handwashing, and proper coughing and sneezing etiquette.
