PRIVATE sector employees who will not report for work on June 17, a regular holiday in observance of Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice), are entitled to receive the full amount of their daily pay, while those going on duty will be paid double.

In an advisory over the weekend, Labor Secretary Bienvenido Laguesma said: "If the employee does not work, the employer shall pay 100 percent of the employee's wage for that day, provided that the employee reports to work or is on leave of absence with pay on the day immediately preceding the regular holiday."
