The Department of Labor and Employment IX (DOLE 9) reminds employers to strictly observe the rule on the payment of wages for the regular holiday falling on January 1, 2019.

DOLE 9 Director Ofelia B. Domingo said that DOLE issued the pay rules as Filipino citizens celebrate the New Year on January 1. Workers who will report to work on the said date must be paid proper wages and benefits.

Prescribing the proper pay rules, Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III issued Labor Advisory No. 21, Series of 2018, pursuant to Proclamation No. 555 signed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte declaring January 1 as Regular Holiday.

The following are the rules for payment of wages on said regular holiday:

If an employee did not work, he/she shall be paid the 100% of his/her salary for that day, subject to certain conditions under the implementing rules and regulations [(Daily rate + COLA) x 100%];

For work done during the regular holiday, the employee shall be paid 200% of his/her regular salary for that day for the first eight hours [(Daily rate + COLA) x 200%];

For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate on said day [Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x number of hours worked];

For work done during a regular holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/hjer daily rate of 200% [(Daily rate + COLA) x 200%] + [30% (Dailyrate x 200%)]; and

For work done in excess of eight (8) hours (overtime work) during a regular holiday that also falls on the workers’ rest day, they shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate on said day (Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200 % x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked). END/kcg
