Just want to ask the case regarding our contract. My colleagues and I worked in a government institution by a status of contract of service. It was stated in our contract we will be paid on a monthly basis on a no work no pay basis. Our question is aren't we entitled to receive pay during legal or local holidays even if we are on a monthly basis? Our HR people recently told us that we don't deserve to received pay during holidays? And also aren't we entitled to received bonuses and other allowances? Remember: we are not an EBJO or employee by job order status, we are a contract of service and we renew our contract every 6months. Furthermore, we heard that some contract of service status in other institution have benefits enjoyed by regular employees. Aren't we entitled for this benefits also?
Thank you in advance for your response. More power to this forum.
