Salary Standardization Law of 2019

Republic Act No. 11466, approved January 8, 2020. The law provided for a modified Salary Schedule for Civilian Personnel to be implemented in four tranches, the first tranche beginning on January 1, 2020, and each successive tranche to start at the beginning of each following year.

The following were excluded from the coverage of the act: (1) military and uniformed personnel; (2) employees of government-owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs) under Republic Act No. 10149; and (3) individuals whose services were engaged through job orders, contracts of service, consultancy, or service contracts.

The modified salary schedule was explicitly allowed to be granted to personnel of local government units (LGUs), as long as the personnel services limitation under Sections 325 and 331 of Republic Act No. 7160 (Local Government Code), and authorization from the Sanggunian concerned is obtained.
