MANILA, Philippines - Workers who report for work tomorrow, All Saints’ Day, are entitled to additional pay, the Department of Labor and Employment said yesterday.
Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said Nov. 1 has been declared a non-working holiday so workers who report for work are entitled to an additional 30 percent of their daily wage for the first eight hours of work and another 30 percent of their hourly rate for service rendered in excess of eight hours.
If the holiday falls on a worker’s rest day but was required to render services, the employee is entitled to receive an
additional pay of 150 of his daily wage for the first eight hours of work and additional 30 percent of his hourly rate in excess of regular working hours.
Baldoz noted, however, that the “no work, no pay” policy applies to workers who do not work tomorrow unless their companies have a regulation granting payment for special holidays even if they do not report for work.
