Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday urged the country’s private employers and businesses to abide by the pay rules for their employees in observance of the Ninoy Aquino Day and in celebration of the National Heroes Day on 21 and 31 August, respectively.

 

President Benigno S. Aquino III’s Proclamation No. 831, Series of 2014 declared 21 and 31 August as special (non-working) day and regular holiday, respectively.

 

“Proper observance of the pay rules on regular holidays and special non-working days will lead to more productive and competent employees. Voluntary compliance with labor laws, including payment of correct wages on holidays, is good for business,” Baldoz said.

 

For 31 August, the following pay rules will apply:

 

1. If the employee did not work, he or she shall be paid 100 percent of his or her salary for that day [(Daily Rate + Cost of Living Allowance) x 100 percent];

 

2. For work done during the regular holiday, an employee shall be paid 200 percent of his or her regular salary for that day for the first eight hours [(Daily Rate + Cost of Living Allowance) x 200 percent];

 

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 200 percent  x 130 percent x number of hours worked];

 

4. For work done during a regular holiday that also falls on his or her rest day, he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his her daily rate of 200 percent [(Daily Rate + Cost of Living Allowance) x 200 percent] + [30 percent (Daily Rate x 200 percent)]; and

 

5. For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a holiday 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 200 percent x 130 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).

 

For 21 August, the labor and employment chief said a different set of pay rules apply, the day being a special non-working day. These pay rules are as follows:

 

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 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 percent)+ 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 percent x 130 percent  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 percent) + 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 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).
