The contract of all job order employees of Negros Oriental government are set to end January 31 after which they will be subjected to evaluation and assessment by the Human Resources office of the Capitol.
Gov. Roel Degamo said yesterday that some of the job order employees will be hired again based on the result of the evaluation and assessment of their performance. He added that the evaluation is needed to determine who deserve the jobs.
Majority of the JO employees were hired during the time of the late Gov. Agustin Perdices, while some were employed by late Gov. Emilio Macias II.
Degamo said most of them are assigned to different offices at the Capitol, while others are detailed to the Provincial Engineer’s Office.
Provincial Human Resource Officer Daisy Vamenta was earlier asked by the Commission on Audit to submit a detailed report on the number of job order employees and their designations. The request was made after the sudden bloating in the number of job order workers under the provincial government.
Vamenta had explained that job order employees were hired on project basis only.
Meanwhile, Dominador Dumalag Jr., who was hired as consultant for agriculture, will continue to work with the province. Dumalag will continue with the strategic planning for the comprehensive agriculture development program, an off-shoot of the 1st Negros Oriental Farmers Congress.
The Congress was one of the pet projects of Perdices for the development of agriculture.
Degamo said he promised to Perdices that he will continue his projects to help the farmers. Part of the program is the acquisition of two cobra heavy duty trucks and two other dump trucks that will be used to transport farm produce to the market, Degamo said.*MA
