February 13 2014 special non-working day in Parañaque City

UPDATE: February 13, 2014 (Thursday) has been declared a special non-working holiday through Proclamation 715. Read the declaration here.

This is wonderful news for those working in Parañaque City. Malacañang has declared February 13 a special-non working holiday in commemoration of Parañaque’s cityhood anniversary. Signed by Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa, Proclamation 543 aims to give the city residents the “full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies.” Download President Benigno Aquino III’s Proclamation 543 here.

Parañaque was converted into a city in 1998, during the term of then-President Fidel V. Ramos. It subsequently became the 11th member-city of the National Capital Region. Not being a national holiday, Parañaque City-based employees who would report for work on the said day are only entitled to an additional 30% of their regular pay for the first eight hours of work. This is outlined in the pay rules set by the Department of Labor and Employment.

Those who would work beyond eight hours will get another plus 30% of their pay rate on that particular date. Meanwhile, employees who will choose to stay home on February 13 are not bound to get paid “unless there is a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment of wages on special days even if unworked.”

This usually depends on a person’s employment status. Regular/permanent/tenured workers are typically paid in full for this day while non-permanent/casual/probationary are not. Employees who are not present in the work day before this holiday (either February 10 or 11) are automatically not entitled to get a holiday premium.
