In section 1 of the Deped Service manual 2000 states that all employees
regardless of their position who renders work during the prescribed office
hours are entitled to have 15 days’ vacation and 15 days’ sick leave with
full pay except Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. But those who are parttime workers who works 4 hours a day are only entitled for a 7.5 days of
vacation and another 7.5 days of sick leave. This varies on the number of
hours he/she renders for the job. Furthermore, Women who are working
in the government for at least two years are entitled for a sixty days’
maternity leave with full pay. But for women who have worked for more
than one year but less than two years, the benefits that could be received
is based on the formula given above, while for those who have worked for
less than one year, they are still entitled for a sixty days’ maternity leave
with half pay for the benefits, and for female teachers, once their
maternity leave is scheduled on summer days they will still be able to
receive both of their salary and their leave benefits.
All women can either complete their 60 days’ maternity leave or
they may return on duty if they have a certificate that they are already fit
to work even if they have not completed their 60 days’ maternity leave. In
cases like this, both the unexpired leave benefits can be received and the
regular salary in accordance with the provisions of section 18, Rule XVI,
CSC-MC No. 41, s. 1998.
