The Civil Service Commission has circularized, through MC No. 18 s. 2016, policy guidelines governing three-salary grade limitation on promotion, superseding MC No. 3, s. 2001. The new circular identified 7 exceptions to the limitation and clarified that the rule does not apply to the following personnel actions:
- transfers incidental to promotion provided the appointee was subjected to deep selection;
- reappointment involving promotion from non-career to career provided the appointee was subjected to deep selection;
- reappointment from career to non-career position;
- reemployment; and
- reclassification of position.
