Manila, Philippines – Nilinaw ng Civil Service Commission (CSC) na ang pag-absent sa trabaho ng isang government employee na naka-quarantine, naka-isolate, o nagpapagaling sa COVID-19 ay ikinokonsiderang ‘excused’.

“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,” lahad ng CSC sa resolusyon.

Inamyendahan naman ng CSC Resolution No. 2101122 ang interim guidelines sa paggamit ng leave credits for absences para  sa COVID-19 quarantine and/or treatment.

Giit ng CSC, kailangang ikonsidera ang mga ganitong sitwasyon.

Maaari naman silang i-require sa work-from-home arrangement depende sa kanilang trabaho.

 “Absences incurred from undergoing the required quarantine period, isolation, and/or treatment after official travel from countries with or without localized COVID-19 transmissions or from local areas under community quarantine are considered excused absences.”

“For personal travel, only the required quarantine period may be excused, while the isolation and/or treatment period shall be charged against leave credits,” dagdag pa ng CSC. RNT/FGDC
