A Social Weather Stations (SWS) September 2021 survey has shown that an estimated 2.5 million Filipino families experienced hunger – due to lack of food to eat – at least once in the past three months.

Many of those who experience hunger are children, who tend to do poorly at school. The government has undertaken numerous programs to address hunger, one of which is the school-based feeding program mandated by Republic Act 11037, also known as an Act Institutionalizing a National Feeding Program for Undernourished Children in Public Day Care of 2018, and primarily implemented by the Department of Education.

Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Civil Service Commission’s (CSC) Contact Center ng Bayan (CCB) resolved a total of 211,726 transactions in 2021.

This, from a total of 212,382 transactions received, posting a resolution rate of 99.69%.

Violations of Republic Act No. 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery (EODB EGSD) Act of 2018 are considered administrative offenses.

In Resolution No. 2000222, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) amended the 2017 Rules on Administrative Cases in the Civil Service (RACCS) to be consistent with the provisions of R.A. No. 11032.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) amended the interim guidelines on the use of leave credits for absences due to COVID-19 quarantine and/or treatment.

In CSC Resolution No. 2101122 dated 31 December 2021, circularized through CSC Memorandum Circular No. 2, s. 2022 dated 18 January 2022, absence from work for every instance of the required quarantine period, isolation, and/or treatment for government workers who are “infected or identified as close contacts of a suspect, probable, and/or confirmed cases of COVID-19 while in the performance of their official functions, (onsite or WFH arrangement)” shall be considered as excused absence. They may be required to adopt a work-from-home arrangement depending on the nature of their work pursuant to the guidelines on alternative work arrangements contained in CSC M.C. No. 18, s. 2020.

A government employee who is called as a witness for the prosecution in an administrative or criminal case may avail of the automatic leave of absence.

In Resolution No. 2000897, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) defines automatic leave of absence as a leave that government workers may avail of should they qualify as a government employee-witness. This may be availed by a government employee-witness regardless of his or her status and length of service.
