The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) reminded employers on the correct observation of pay rules for August 21, a special non-working day to commemorate Ninoy Aquino Day.
In a statement released on Thursday, the DOLE said the no-work, no-pay principle shall be applied on August 21, “unless there is a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on a special day.”
An additional 30 percent to the regular salary will be given to those who will report on that day, while an additional 30 percent will be given to those working overtime.
For workers whose rest day falls on rest day, they will be paid an additional 50 percent to their regular salary.
“Proper observance of the pay rules on a Special Non-Working Day strengthens decent work and encourages productivity. Voluntary compliance of companies with this labor standard is good business practice,” DOLE Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said.
