Question Six-hour Work Day of Teachers

Government School Teachers are aware of the CSC Resolution No. 080096, DepEd Order 291, s. 2008, and DepEd Order 16, s. 2009 about the six-hour workday. If a teacher has rendered the 6 hours classroom teaching duly reflected in his time card, he shall be deemed to have completed the required daily work hours and must not be declared to have incurred under time in the report of attendance and must not be subjected to salary deductions by the concerned payroll services unit. Calabarzon, NCR, Region III, and some other schools have been practicing this yet in some regions, this is not the case. This is because some school heads have different interpretations and are still obliging the teachers to be in school for 8 hours as programmed in the biometrics. May I know if a school head is committing an offense for not implementing this 6-hour work day? Suppose the teacher wished to exercise this privilege, and the principal did not approve since he has his own interpretation, as a result, under time/late has been reflected in the biometrics, would the teacher be charged of habitual tardiness and undertime? May this issue be clarified. Thank you.

Please be informed that as a matter of policy, the Commission does not render opinions or rulings on issues that may eventually be the subject of a complaint or appeal before it. This is so especially when there are material facts necessary to the judicious adjudication of the issues which are not fully represented or substantiated as in this case.

However based on your representations, a school head who fails to implement a established law or rule may be liable for Grave Misconduct or Simple Misconduct. In OCA vs. Lopez, A.M. No. P-10-2788 dated January 18, 2011, the Supreme Court held: “Misconduct is a transgression of some established and definite rule of action, more particularly, unlawful behaviour or gross negligence by a public officer. The misconduct is grave if it involves any of the additional elements of corruption, wilful intent to violate the law, or to disregard established rules, which must be established by substantial evidence. As distinguished from simple misconduct, the elements of corruption, clear intent to violate the law, or flagrant disregard of established rule, must be manifest in a charge of grave misconduct.”

On the other hand, a teacher may be subjected to disciplinary action such as habitual tardiness and/or undertime for likewise intentionally violating established rules.

Thank you po for the clarification. May we request for some Must-read resolutions about teachers' habitual tardiness/absences?
