July 3 2013 Pasig City Day Holiday

Working in Ortigas? Then, this is good news for you.

Pasig City will mark its 440th foundation anniversary next Tuesday, July 2. The day has been declared a special non-working holiday by President Benigno Aquino III through Proclamation 607. Read the full text of the proclamation here.

A similar announcement was made last year. According to the city government’s official website, Pasig was declared as the Visitacion Parish in July 2, 1573. The page claims that Visitacion is the first Marian Parish in the Philippines and perhaps in the entire Asia.

According to pay rules set by the Department of Labor and Employment, employees who choose not to work on special non-working holidays will not get any compensation unless there is “a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment of wages on special days even if unworked.”
