Pursuant to Resolution No. 9804 promulgated on 24 October 2013 by the Commission on Elections postponing and resetting the 28 October 2013 Barangay Election Day in the entire Province of Bohol to 25 November 2013, Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday issued Labor Advisory No. 9 Series of 2013 spelling out the guidelines on the correct payment of wages for private sector workers in the said province during this day.

“Pursuant to the COMELEC resolution and Proclamation No. 656 issued by President Benigno S. Aquino III on 25 September 2013, I have issued Labor Advisory No. 9 to govern the payment of correct wages to private sector workers in Bohol on 25 November,” said Baldoz.

The 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 the special day;

(2) If the employee worked, he shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her daily rate on the first eight hours of work. Sample computation: [(Daily Rate x 130 percent) + Cost of Living Allowance];

(3) For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day. Sample computation: (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 an employee’s rest day, he shall be paid an additional 50 percent of his daily rate on the first eight hours of work. Sample computation: [(Daily Rate x 150 percent) + COLA]; and

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