0

Employees of the Negros Occidental provincial government will receive salary hikes in 2021, according to Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz.

Diaz said funds for the Salary Standardization Law 4 (SSL 4) had been included in the 2021 Annual Budget.

SSL 4 was not implemented in 2020 as the provincial government had exceeded the limitation for personal services or ceiling for the salaries and benefits of employees. (https://bit.ly/3pr0QXD)

Based on records from the provincial government, the personal services reached a total of P601 million last year.

Next year, all Capitol employees will enjoy that increase, according to the official.

Diaz said Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson directed him to make sure that SSL 4 is fully implemented next year.

The increase will cover workers under Salary Grades 15 to 20.
