Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner Caesar Dulay has dismissed from the service a Revenue District Officer (RDO) stationed in Southern Luzon for prolonged absence from work.
The RDO did not report for work from December 7, 2015 to the present in violation of the Civil Service Law, as well as pertinent policies and guidelines of the revenue service on office attendance.
In addition, he also did not submit Daily Time Records and other pertinent documents.
The dropping from the rolls of the revenue officer was recommended by the Regional Director having jurisdiction over the place of assignment of the officer.
The recommendation was immediately approved by Dulay.
The RDO’s dismissal came in wake of a memorandum from Dulay enjoining all BIR officials and employees to render not less than eight hours of work a day for five days a week, or a total of 40 hours a week, exclusive of the one hour lunchbreak each day.
Dulay also warned revenue officials and employees that habitual absenteeism and habitual tardiness, as well as loafing, will be severely penalized as these infractions severely affect normal operations of the bureau and consequently disrupt, delay or stall efficient delivery of frontline services to the public.
