July 3 is significant in the history of Pasig City because on this date back in 1573, the territory was first declared as a Visitacion Parish. According to the city’s official website, it is the first Marian parish in the country and perhaps even in the entire Asia.

Now regarded as one of the country’s commercial capitals because of the Ortigas business district, Pasig only became a city in 1994 through Republic Act 7829.

According to the Department of Labor and Employment’s Handbook on Workers’ Statutory Monetary Benefits (2010 edition),  the “no work, no pay” should be observed on special non-working days like these.

In other words, workers who are not required or permitted to work on special days are not entitled to any compensation unless there’s a corporate policy that allows that practice.

Meanwhile, those who report for work on this day are entitled to get plus 30% of their regular rate for every hour of service rendered.
