MANILA, Philippines – The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has announced that government employees in areas heavily affected by typhoons Quinta and Rolly may file for up to five days of leave of absence from work.
This special emergency leave privilege will not be deducted from the employee’s regular leave credits, the CSC assured, and can be availed within 30 days after the onset of the typhoon.
The days of leave of absence may be utilized for recovery or repairs of damaged properties or to attend to other relatives affected by the calamity.
The CSC said the leave of absence will be based on the declaration of a state of calamity in the employee’s place of residence or it may be offered by the head of the government agency if deemed necessary based on evidence provided by the employee. –MNP (with inputs from Rey Pelayo)

MANILA, Philippines – Mahigit sa 700-libong trabaho ang iaalok sa online job fair na nakatakdang isagawa ng Civil Service Comission (CSC) sa susunod na linggo.
Ayon sa CSC, sisimulan ang online job fair sa Setyembre 14 at magtatapos sa Setyembre 18.
Sinabi ni CSC Commissioner Atty. Aileen Lizada na 76 ahensiya ang lalahok sa job fair na gagawin katuwang ang JobStreet.com.
“This is the time po at least sa mga bahay ninyo at the confides of your home you can access jobstreet.com. Tignan nyo lang po dun sa jobstreet.com meron pong proseso on how to get it hopefully. We will be able to give more jobs sa mga taong naghahanap po,” ani Lizada.
Layon aniya ng online job fair na tulungang makahanap ng trabaho ang mga naapektuhan ng pagsasara ng mga kumpanya bunsod ng epekto ng COVID-19 pandemic.
Sa huling survey ng Social Weather Stations, aabot sa 27.3 milyong Pilipino ang nawalan ng trabaho dahil sa pagsasara ng maraming negosyo at establisimyento sa gitna ng kinakaharap na krisis.
Para sa mga nais mag-apply sa naturang online job fair, maaaring pumunta sa website ng CSC upang i-download at sagutan ang personal data sheet (PDS).
Sa JobStreet, maaaring hanapin ang ahensiya at ang posisyon na nais pasukan.
Dapat ring tiyakin na may account sila sa JobStreet upang mai-upload ang PDS.
Kailangan ring pasado sa Civil Service Examination ang aplikante.
Ayon sa CSC, sasailalim sa assessment ang aplikante at tatawagan na lamang o kaya ay papadalhan ng mensahe kung matatanggap sa trabaho.
Hinihikayat ng ahensiya ang mga naghahanap ng trabaho na samantalahin ang pagkakataon upang magkaroon ng hanapbuhay sa gitna ng pandemya. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Joan Nano)
MANILA, Philippines — Some information on cases involving officials of the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) are allegedly being withheld.
This was revealed during the hearing on Tuesday (August 25) by the House Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability and the House Committee on Public Accounts on the alleged corruption within the agency.
The lawmakers initially asked officials of the Civil Service Commission (CSC) who were present at the hearing regarding cases that have been filed with the agency against PhilHealth executives .
CSC Assistant Commissioner Ariel Ronquillo was not able to provide a specific number of cases so the lawmakers asked Commissioner Aileen Lizada.
The official said there have been 74 cases filed in the CSC Central Office since 2010.
Of the said number, 19 are pending including the ones involving high ranking PhilHealth officials.
The panel questioned Ronquillo why he was not able to give the information when he was supposed to be the representative of CSC Chairperson Alicia del Rosa-Bala in the hearing.
Lizada then revealed that there was an instruction from the CSC Chairperson not to give out any information about the PhilHealth officials’ cases.
“If my recollection serves me right: ‘This information should not be made public nor be given out to anyone who would be asking either in aid of legislation or investigation,’ parang ganun. Iyon ang natatandaan ko, (Something like that. That’s what I remember),” said Lizada.
But according to Ronquillo, the instructions were to keep the information confidential.
“[The] instruction of the chair was to ensure that this matter will be kept confidential and not to be shared to the public, but will be shared if needed in any of the investigations being conducted concerning PhilHealth. So there is no guidance to suppress evidence,” he said.
Lizada said her office is conducting an inventory of all cases after President Rodrigo Duterte ordered a task force to investigate the alleged anomalies in the state insurer.
The House panel will resume its inquiries for the CSC in the next hearing on Thursday where CSC Chairperson Bala has been invited for a chance to respond to the queries.
Meanwhile, the audio recording of the meeting where the said guidance was mentioned has been subpoenaed to shed light on Commissioner Lizada’s claim that there had been an order not to disclose information about PhilHealth officials’ cases with the CSC. MNP (with reports from Rey Pelayo)
