Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday said that Sunday, 27 July 2013, was a declared special non-working holiday all over the country to commemorate the 100th Foundation Anniversary of the Iglesia Ni Cristo and she reiterated the applicable pay rules for the said day.

“This is pursuant to joint Resolution No. 2 of the Senate of the Philippines and the House of Representatives duly approved by President Benigno  S. Aquino III,” Baldoz said.

On the applicable pay rules for private sector workers last Sunday, 27 July, Baldoz issued Labor Advisory No. 8, Series of 2014, or the Payment of Wages for the Special (Non-working) Day in Commemoration of the Founding Anniversary of Iglesia ni Cristo to guide private employers and workers on the correct payment of wages for work done during the said day.

“I urge private sector employers to voluntarily comply with the holiday pay rules,” she said, reiterating that “proper observance of the pay rules on regular holidays and special non-working days is decent and moral and encourages productive and proficient workers”.

Based on Labor Advisory No. 8, Series of 2014, the following holiday pay rules shall apply:

1.  If the employee did not work, the “no work, no pay” principle shall apply, unless there is a favorable company policy, practice, or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on this special non-working day;
2.  For work done during this special non-working day, he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her daily rate on the first eight hours of work [(Daily Rate x 130%)+ Cost of Living Allowance] ;

3.  For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on said day (Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked);

4.  For work done during the special day that also falls on his or her rest day, he or she shall be paid an additional 50 percent of his or her daily rate on the first eight hours of work [(Daily Rate x 150%) + Cost of Living Allowance]; and

5.  For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a special day that also falls on his or her rest day, he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on said day (hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 150% x 130% x number of hours worked).
