MANILA - Government has extended until the end of 2022 the period of its hiring contract of service and job order workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Budget Secretary Wendel Avisado said Wednesday.

The hiring of said workers was supposed to end this year, Avisado said.

"Napagkasunduan po namin na i-extend ang hiring ng contract of service at job orders hanggang katapusan ng taong 2022 dahil nga po sa kasulukuyang sitwasyon, dahil dito sa COVID-19 at sa pangangailangan ng iba’t ibang ahensiya ng pamahalaan po," he told ABS-CBN's Teleradyo.
