Officials allay employees’
fear on refund of bonus

Dumaguete City Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria reassured City Hall employees that the city is doing its best to prevent the implementation of the notice of disallowance by the Commission on Audit of the additional cash incentive given them last December.

Vice Mayor Woodrow Maquiling Sr. said the meetings with employees in small batches are intended to appease them over the COA notice that casual plantilla workers of the city will have to refund their 2013 Productive Enhancement Incentive.

Around 500 to 600 casual plantilla workers of the city will be affected by the COA move, and Sagarbarria and other city officials vowed to fight it up to the Supreme Court.moremoremore
