Joint Resolution no. 4 authorizes the President of the Philippines to modify the compensation and position classification system of civilian personnel and the base pay schedule of military and uniformed personnel in the government, including devolved public health workers (PHWs). The implementation of the law falls heavily on the Department of Budget and Management in close coordination with the Civil Service Commission, consistent with the executive orders to be issued by the President.

The DBM is likewise directed to prepare Consolidated Compensation and Position Classification Report and its status of implementation and periodically update the same and submit to Congress and the Commission on Audit for public disclosure, monitoring and compliance with established policies and as basis for future policy decisions. Its governing principles are as follows:
  • Just and equitable compensation in accordance with the principle of equal pay for work of equal value with differences in pay based on verifiable compensation and classification factors in due

R.A 7305 not affected by other laws

What are the effects of R.A 7160 and Joint Resolution no. 4 on R.A 7305? Are the magna carta benefits under R.A 7305 modified or amended by Joint Resolution no. 4 or R.A 7160? How should the Magna Carta provisions be interpreted in case of conflict with other laws or doubt? These are some of the issues which are circulating in the local government units and local budget officers are showing their proclivity to restrain the implementation of Magna Carta benefits.
