Higher pay for workers for December holidays

Employees in the private sector who will report to work on the declared holidays this month are entitled to receive higher pay, the labor department said on Thursday.

In Labor Advisory No. 32, series of 2020 signed by Secretary Silvestre Bello III, there are three special non-working holidays and two regular holidays in December. The special holidays are the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary (December 8) Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, while the regular holidays are Christmas Day and Rizal Day (December 30).

Bello reminded employers to observe the proper payment of wages on said holidays.

The prescribed pay rules for December 8, 24, and 31, 2020, (special non-working holidays) are the following:

For employees who did not work, the “no work, no pay” policy shall apply unless there is another company policy, practice, or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on special days.

For work done during the special non-working holiday, the employees shall be paid an additional 30% of their basic wage on the first eight hours of work [(basic wage x 130%) + COLA].

For work done over eight hours (overtime work), the employees shall be paid an additional 30% of their hourly rate on the said day [hourly rate of the basic wage x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked].

If the employees work on a special holiday that also falls on their rest day, they shall be paid an additional 50 percent of their basic wage on the first eight hours of work [(basic wage x 150%) + COLA].

For overtime work on a special holiday that also falls on their rest day, they shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate on the said day [Hourly rate of the basic wage x 150% x 130% x number of hours worked].

For December 25 and 30, which are regular holidays, the following rules shall apply:

If the employees did not work, they shall be paid 100% of their salary for days indicated [(basic wage + COLA) x 100%], while for work done during the regular holiday, the employees shall be paid 200% of their regular salary for the first eight hours [(basic wage + COLA) x 200%].

For overtime work (work done over eight hours), they shall be paid an additional 30% of their hourly rate [Hourly rate of the basic wage x 200% x 130% x number of hours worked].

If employees work on a regular holiday that also falls on their rest day, they shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate of 200 percent [(basic wage + COLA) x 200%] + [30% (basic wage x 200%)].

For overtime work on a regular holiday that also falls on their rest day, they shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate on the said day [Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked].

However, in line with the existence of a national emergency due to the COVID-19 crisis, establishments that have closed or ceased operations during the community quarantine period are exempted from the payment of the prescribed holiday pay on December 25 and 30, 2020 under the said advisory. ###Paul Ang

Mas mataas na sahod para sa manggagawa ngayong holiday ng Disyembre

Makakatanggap ng mas mataas na sahod ang mga empleyado sa pribadong sektor na magtatrabaho sa mga idineklarang holiday ngayong buwan, ulat ng labor department.

Sa Labor Advisory No. 32, series of 2020, na nilagdaan ni Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III, may tatlong special non-working holiday at dalawang regular holiday ngayong Disyembre. Ang mga special holiday ay Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary (Disyembre 8) Christmas Eve at New Year’s Eve, samantalang ang regular holiday ay Christmas Day at Rizal Day (Disyembre 30).

Pinaalalahanan ni Bello ang mga employer na sundin ang tamang pagbibigay ng sahod sa mga nasabing holiday.

Ang itinakdang patakaran para sa Disyembre 8, 24 at 31, 2020 (special non-working holiday) ay ang mga sumusunod:

Para sa empleyadong hindi magtatrabaho, ang polisiyang “no work, no pay” ang ipatutupad maliban na lamang kung may ibang polisiya ang kompanya o collective bargaining agreement (CBA) na nag-aatas na bigyan sila ng sahod para sa mga nasabing special day.

Para sa trabahong ginawa ng special non-working holiday, babayaran ang empleyado ng karagdagang 30% ng kanilang basic wage para sa unang walong oras [(basic wage x 130%) + COLA].

Para sa trabahong ginawa na mahigit sa walong oras (overtime work), babayaran ang empleyado ng karagdagang 30% ng kanyang hourly rate sa nasabing araw [hourly rate of the basic wage x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked].

Kung ang empleyado ay nagtrabaho sa nasabing special holiday at ito rin ay araw ng kanyang pahinga, dapat silang bayaran ng karagdagang 50% ng kanilang basic wage para sa unang walong oras ng trabaho [(basic wage x 150%) + COLA].

Para sa overtime work ng special holiday at ito rin ay araw ng kanyang pahinga, babayaran sila ng karagdagang 30% ng kanilang hourly rate sa nasabing araw [Hourly rate of the basic wage x 150% x 130% x number of hours worked].

Para sa Disyembre 25 at 30 na regular holiday, ang mga sumusunod na patakaran ang dapat sundin:

Kung ang empleyado ay hindi nagtrabaho, tatanggap siya ng 100% ng kanyang sahod para sa nabanggit na mga araw [(basic wage + COLA) x 100%], samantalang kung ito ay nagtrabaho ng regular holiday, babayaran ang empleyado ng 200% ng kanilang regular na sahod para sa unang walong oras [(basic wage + COLA) x 200%].

Para sa overtime work (trabahong ginawa ng mahigit sa walong oras), dapat silang bayaran ng karagdagang 30% ng kanilang hourly rate [Hourly rate of the basic wage x 200% x 130% x number of hours worked].

Kung ang empleyado ay nagtrabaho ng regular holiday at ito rin ay araw ng kanyang pahinga, babayaran sila ng karagdagang 30% ng kanilang hourly rate na 200% [(basic wage + COLA) x 200%] + [30% (basic wage x 200%)].

Para sa overtime work sa regular holiday at ito rin ay araw ng kanilang pahinga, dapat silang barayan ng karagdagang 30% ng kanilang hourly rate sa nasabing araw [Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked].

Gayunpaman, dahil sa umiiral na national emergency dulot ng pandemyang Covid-19, ang mga establisimyento na nagsara o tumigil ng operasyon sa panahon ng community quarantine ay hindi kinakailangang magbayad ng itinakdang holiday pay para sa Disyembre 25 at 30, 2020 batay sa nasabing advisory.###Paul Ang/gmea
