The Department of Labor and Employment yesterday reminded employers to strictly follow the holiday pay rules for May 1, 2017, Labor Day, a regular holiday.

 

Labor Day is celebrated to give recognition and honor to the sacrifices and hard work of our Filipino workingmen.

 

Pursuant to Proclamation No. 50 issued by President Rodrigo Duterte on August 16, 2016, the labor department issued the rules prescribing the proper payment of wages for regular holidays.

 

The DOLE mandates the following pay rules to be implemented on Labor Day:

 

If the employee did not work, he/she shall be paid 100% of his/her salary for that day [(Daily rate + COLA)] x 100%];

 

For work done during the regular holiday, he/she shall be paid 200% of his/her regular salary for that day for the first eight hours [(Daily rate + COLA) x 200%];

 

For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate on said day (Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x number of hours worked);

 

For work done during a regular holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her daily rate of 200% [(Daily rate + COLA) x 200%] + [30% (Daily rate x 200%0]; and

 

For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a regular holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate on said day (Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x 130% number of hours worked).
