1. Are you a government employee?
2. Did your place (home) get declared under a state of calamity when Typhoon Maring battered the country?
3. Did your house get inundated by floods or any does part of your house need to be repaired due to the recent typhoon?
4. Do any of you immediate relatives need caring for because of the damage brought about by the Typhoon?
5. Did any of your immediate family relatives get sick because of the recent typhoon?
 
If you answered yes to questions 1 and 2 and to questions 3 OR 4 OR 5, then you can avail of the special privilege leave (also known as calamity leave) granted by Civil Service Commission Memorandum Circular No.2, series of 2012, pursuant to  CSC Resolution No. 1200289.
If you need to have your house or any part of it that was destroyed by Maring,
then by all means, take a leave and do it.

The leave is for five (5) days and may be availed of for five straight days or on a staggered basis and will not be deducted from the employee's leave credits.
