Workers in Kayapa municipal gov’t in Nueva Vizcaya got low pay
State auditors scored the municipal government of Kayapa in Nueva Vizcaya for paying six officials way below P3,000 monthly salary.
In a 2016 report, the Commission on Audit (COA) said six officials and employees received take home pays below the statutory net pay of P3,000 per month.
The auditors said the employees received pay between P1,851 and P2,888.
Auditors said this violated Section 48 of the General Provisions of Republic Act 10651, otherwise known as the General Appropriations Act of 2015.
“Review of payrolls disclosed that some employees’ net take home-pay were below the statutory net pay of P3,000 which is not in conformity with the provisions of the aforesaid law,” auditors said.
“Data summarized from the latest payroll submitted for November 2015 showed that six employees received net pays below the salary threshold as required under Section 48 of the 2015 GAA, thereby defeating the purpose of the law in ensuring that employees have enough to support for their daily needs until the next pay day,” they added.
The COA urged municipal mayor John Balasya not to allow any of its officials and employees to receive a monthly net pay below P3,000.
