MOST of the 213 job order (JO) employees in the Provincial Government-run hospitals in Negros Occidental were rehired.
Provincial Budget Officer Jose Percival Salado Jr. said on Wednesday the JOs will continue to work until December 31 this year.
“Majority of them were rehired, as recommended by the chiefs of hospitals. There were only one or two who didn’t have the recommendation,” Salado said.
The salaries of the JOs from January to June were delayed.
Salado said the payrolls had already been processed and released.
The Capitol had been evaluating the performances of the JOs under the 11 Capitol-run hospitals.
