Workers get double pay today, Labor Day

 

Workers in the private sector who will render duties and services today, Labor Day, will get paid twice their regular daily wages, the labor department said.

 

This was contained in the Labor Advisory No. 06, series of 2019 issued by DOLE Acting Secretary Ana C. Dione, citing Proclamation No. 555 issued by President Rodrigo Duterte which declared May 1, 2019, as a regular holiday for the observance of the Labor Day.

 

In line with this, the following pay rules for a Regular holiday should be observed:

 

If the employee did not work, he or she shall be paid 100 percent of his or her salary for that day ([Daily Rate + COLA] x 100 percent); however, if the employee worked on the said holiday, he or she shall be paid 200 percent of his or her regular salary for that day for the first eight (8) hours ([Daily Rate + COLA] x 200 percent).

 

In addition, if the employee worked in excess of 8 hours (overtime work), he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on said day (hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).

 

If the employee worked during a regular holiday that also falls on his or her rest day, he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her daily rate of 200 percent [(daily rate + COLA) x 200 percent] + [30 percent (daily rate x 200 percent)].

 

Furthermore, if the employee worked in excess of 8 hours (overtime work) during a regular holiday that also falls on his or her rest day, he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on said day (hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200 percent x 130 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).
