Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III reminded employers on the applicable pay rules during the observance of the 31st EDSA People Power Revolution on February 25, a special non-working holiday.

President Rodrigo R. Duterte on August 16, 2016, issued Proclamation No. 50 declaring February 25, 2017 as a Special Non-Working Holiday throughout the country to mark the 31st Anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution.

The following pay rules shall apply on February 25:

• 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 special day.

• For work done during the special day, the workers shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their daily rate on the first eight hours of work. The “Daily rate x 130% plus COLA” scheme will be observed.

• For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), the workers will be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate on said day. The computation will be: Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked.

• For work done during a special day that also falls on the workers’ rest day, they shall be paid an additional 50 percent of their daily rate on the first eight hours of work, thus, the “Daily rate x 150% + COLA” computation will apply.

• For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a special day that also falls on the workers’ rest day, they shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate on said day, or a computation of “hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 150% x 130% x number of hours worked”.
