#WalangPasok – March 29 2024 declared regular holiday for Good Friday

This year’s Good Friday will fall on March 29, 2024.

The day has been declared a regular holiday nationwide as stipulated in President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr.’s Proclamation 368, which lists the nationwide holidays for 2024. The Filipino Scribe reported about Proclamation 368 here.

According to pay rules set by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), employees covered by the holiday pay rule are entitled to receive 100% of their regular daily wage rate even if they do not report for work on regular holidays like Good Friday. This daily wage rate is the sum of a worker’s daily basic wage and cost of living allowance.

Meanwhile, those who will report for work on Good Friday are entitled to get at least twice or 200% of their daily wage rate, which is more commonly referred to as “double pay.” Click here to download the 2022_DOLE_Handbook_on_Workers_Statutory_Monetary_Benefits.

However, it must be emphasized that workers can only get this holiday pay if they are present or at least have filed a leave of absence with pay on their work day immediately preceding Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, which is Holy Wednesday – March 27, 2024.
