City JO employees
renewed for 1 month

Appointments of job order employees have been renewed only for February, pending the results of the mandatory drug testing initiated by the city government of Dumaguete.

City Human Resource officer Dino Depositario said the mayor is determined to purge the ranks of undesirables and drug dependents as part of the cleansing process to achieve a drug-free work place in the city.

Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo had earlier said the mandatory drug test is in support of the national government's campaign against illegal drugs.

Depositario said the mandatory drug testing will be completed this week, and required those who failed to submit themselves to drug testing before, to do so within the week.

Unconfirmed reports say that several job order employees, including regulars and casuals, were found positive for illegal use of drugs.

As to the report that more than 30 were found positive, including a female employee, Depositario said he cannot confirm this until the mandatory drug testing is completed today or within the week.

The City Veterinary Office and the City Assessor's Office employees were the last to undergo the drug testing.*JG
