February 14 2024 declared a working holiday in Valenzuela City
Valenzuela City will be commemorating its 26th annual foundation day anniversary this coming February 14, Wednesday.
The day has been declared a special working holiday in Valenzuela City in accordance with Republic 9428, which then-President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed back in 2007. The former Valenzuela municipality was converted into a highly-urbanized city via Republic Act 8526 which was enacted in 1998 during the term of then-President Fidel Ramos.
It must be pointed out here though that President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. may declare the day as a special non-working holiday through a proclamation in the coming days.
Pay Rules For Araw ng Lungsod ng Valenzuela – February 14, 2024
According to the 2022 Department of Labor and Employment Handbook on Workers’ Statutory Monetary Benefits, employers are not required to give premium pay because work performed during a special work day like the foundation anniversary of Valenzuela this year is considered similar to working on an ordinary workday.
