The Negros Occidental provincial government has began distributing the P3, 000 anniversary bonus to its employees, Provincial Administrator Rayfrado Diaz said Monday, June 6.
The bonus is being distributed to regular and casual employees of the provincial government, he said.
Department of Budget and Management Circular 65 dated March 3, 1997, provides that every five years government officials and employees are entitled to an anniversary bonus amounting to P3, 000, he said.
The funds for the anniversary bonus were included in the 2022 annual budget, Diaz said.
The anniversary bonus was granted based on Provincial Ordinance No. 006, Series of 2011, declaring May 1, 1901 as the date when the province of Negros Occidental was created, he added.
