Function of Civil Service Commission

Function of Civil Service Commission

Functions –– In countless occasions, the Court has ruled that the only function of the CSC is merely to ascertain whether the appointee possesses the minimum requirements under the law; however, in light of the circumstances unique to a government reorganization, such pronouncements must be reconciled with the provisions of R.A. No. 6656; as early as Gayatao v. Civil Service Commission, which is analogous to this case, the Court already ruled that in instances of reorganization, there is no encroachment on the discretion of the appointing authority when the CSC revokes an appointment on the ground that the removal of the employee was done in bad faith. (Gov. Cerilles vs. Civil Service Commission, G.R. No. 180845, June 06, 2018)
