Pay rules for ASEAN holiday out

Date Posted: November 10th, 2017 01:44 PM

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) reminded yesterday private sector employers to pay workers the proper wages during the three-day ASEAN holiday next week.

 

Malacanang has declared November 13-15 as special non-working days in the National Capital Region (NCR), and the provinces of Bulacan and Pampanga in time for the country’s hosting of the 31st ASEAN Summit.

 

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III issued a labor advisory mandating the proper computation and payment of wages for November 13, 14 and 15.

 

During the said special non-working holidays, the following pay rules must be observed:

 

If an 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 a 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 (8) hours of work. The Daily Rate x 130 percent plus COLA scheme will be observed.

 

For work done in excess of eight (8) 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 percent x 130 percent 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 (8) hours of work, thus, the ‘Daily Rate x 150 percent + COLA’ computation will apply.

 

For work done in excess of eight (8) 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 percent x 130  percent x number of hours worked.
