Give workers holiday pay for Oct. 31, Nov. 1 duties

Manila — The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is reminding private employers to pay their workers 30 percent more on Monday (Oct. 31) and on Tuesday, All Saints’ Day (Nov. 1) if they report for duty on the two special nonworking days.

“The proper observance of the pay rules and core labor standards on these special nonworking days promotes decent work, productivity and competitiveness among workers,” Labor secretary Silvestre Bello III said in a statement on Sunday.

Under wage rules, an employee who reports for work on a special nonworking day is entitled to an additional 30 percent of his or her daily rate for the first 8 hours of work and another 30 percent of their hourly rate for overtime work.

For work done on a special nonworking day that also falls on a worker’s rest day, he or she shall receive an additional 50 percent of his or her daily rate for the first 8 hours of work and an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate for overtime work.

Bello reiterated the “no work, no pay” principle would apply if an employee did not work on the day “unless there is a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining agreement granting payment on a special nonworking holiday.”
