No lunch break in Davao

DAVAO CITY — The City Hall here is set to strictly implement the “No Lunch Break” policy as prescribed by a national law for all government offices in the country.

This came after several complaints from the public that some departments are closing their offices during lunch time.

In a memorandum dated Aug. 29, Acting City Administrator Zuleika Lopez said all departments of the City Hall were reminded that there should be personnel who will attend to their clients’ needs even during lunch breaks.

Lopez cited Republic Act No. 9485 otherwise known as the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007 aims to improve the efficiency of the services rendered by all government offices across the country.

“As such, you are requested to device appropriate working schedules to attend to clients who are within their premises during lunch break,” Lopez said.

The “No Noon Break” policy has been followed by all departments of the City Hall when the Civil Service Commission (CSC) has issued a memorandum circular in 2009 mandating all government offices to implement what the law provides.
