Capiz prov’l government observes ‘no noon-break’ policy

by Alex A. Lumaque

ROXAS CITY, Capiz, Jan. 21 (PIA) -- A “no noon-break” policy is being observed by the Capiz provincial government effective Jan. 18 to ensure continuous service especially on its front line departments.

In a memorandum, Capiz Gov. Victor A. Tanco, Sr. directed various department heads, chiefs of hospitals and offices to adopt an appropriate working schedule for their employees to ensure continuous service.

“You are to assign or two personnel to entertain the transacting public covering the 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. period,” he stressed.

The chief provincial executive added that the initiative shall be complemented with the corresponding “We Observe No Noon-Break Policy” signages installed on the main door or to any conspicuous places of the office.

He also ordered the offices of the Provincial Governor and Provincial Social Welfare and Development to establish a senior citizen’s lane or desk.

The measures are in accordance with Republic Act No. 9485 known as the Anti-Red Tape Act (ARTA) of 2007.

Recently, ARTA Watch was also conducted by the Civil Service Commission to monitor the efficiency of government service in various public offices here.

The monitoring was particularly scheduled during lunch time to check the “no-noon break” policy of frontline agencies. (JSC/AAL-PIA 6 Capiz)
