Hazard pay for DRRMO sought
by Jordan G. Habbiling / PIO

Vice Mayor Faustino Olowan is proposing the grant of hazard duty pay to the employees of the City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO).

Olowan said that human resources in the CDRRMO under the City Mayor’s Office are among the government personnel who undertake hazardous work putting their safety at risk when in duty and endangering their health as they are often exposed in hazard-stricken areas.

He said the provision of hazard pay to the CDRRMO personnel is “an equitable compensation for the services they provide.”

The ordinance defines hazard duty pay as “an additional compensation premium or allowance generally paid to officials and employees who, because of the nature and/or location of their work, are exposed to hazards.”

Under the ordinance, all officials and employees of the CDRRMO, whether permanent, causal, co-terminus, contractual, or under job order, will receive the benefit, subject to Department of Budget Management Circular 451, s. 1996.

The proposal allots P200,000 for the purpose to be included every year in the budget of the City Mayor’s Office.

In his proposal, Olowan invoked the DBM circular that provides the guidelines on the grant of hazard duty pay and officials and employees who are exposed to hazards due to the nature of their work may be provided with compensation premium or allowance.
