DOLE issues pay
rules for tomorrow

Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz has released pay rules for tomorrow, Araw ng Kagitingan, which is a regular holiday nationwide, a press release from DOLE said.

This is by virtue of the declaration by President Benigno Aquino III under Proclamation No. 459, Series of 2012, Declaring the Regular Holidays, Special (Non-Working) Days, and Special Holiday (For All Schools) For the 2013, Baldoz explained.

Existing implementing guidelines state that  if an employee did not work, he/she shall be paid 100 percent of his/her salary for that day, with the COLA included in the computation of holiday pay, the press release said.

If an employee worked, he/she shall be paid 200 percent of his/her regular salary for that day for the first eight hours, with the COLA also included, it added.

However, if an employee worked in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate.

If an employee worked during a regular holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her daily rate of 200 percent, the press release said.

If an employee worked 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 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day, it added.

Baldoz urged the country’s private sector employers to observe the proper pay rules and core labor standards applicable on this regular holiday, the press release said.*
