DOLE pay rules – April 17 and 18 holiday

Filipinos anywhere in the Philippines will be enjoy a rare four-day weekend next week as the nation marks the culmination of the annual Lenten Season. These holidays are listed in Proclamation 655, which President Benigno Aquino signed last September 2013. They are as follows:

April 17, 2014 – Maundy Thursday

April 18, 2014 – Good Friday

April 19, 2014 – Black Saturday

It must be noted that while  Maundy Thursday and Good Friday are regular holidays, Black Saturday is just a special non-working holiday. In other words, they are governed by different pay rules as stipulated by the Department of Labor and Employment.  Click here to read DOLE’s Handbook on Worker’s Statutory Monetary Benefits (2010 edition).

For Maundy Thursday (April 17) and Good Friday (April 18)

• If the employee did not work, he/she shall be paid 100 percent of his/her salary for that day. Sample computation: Daily rate + Cost of Living Allowance x 100%. The COLA is included in the computation of holiday pay.

• If the employee worked, he/she shall be paid 200 percent of his/her regular salary for that day for the first eight hours. Sample computation: Daily rate + COLA x 200%. The COLA is also included in computation of holiday pay.

• If the employee worked in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day.

Sample computation: Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x number of hours worked.

• If the 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.

Sample computation: [(Daily rate + COLA) x 200%] + 30% Daily rate x 200%).

• If the 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.

Sample computation: Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked.

    those who did not work will get 100% & those who did work will get 200% that means for the work he did he is only paid 100% right? but during saturdays or sundays work done is paid 130% how come during legal holidays it is only 100%???
