The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) issued pay guidelines for employers for their employees’ work rendered during the holidays in April 2022.

These are for the holidays this month as follows:

  • April 9: Araw ng Kagitingan (regular holiday)
  • April 14: Maundy Thursday (regular holiday)
  • April 15: Good Friday (regular holiday)
  • April 16: Black Saturday (special non-working holiday)

 

DOLE Secretary Silvester Bello III, in Labor Advisory No. 8, said employees who will report to work on April 9, 14 and 15 will be entitled to double pay.

Meanwhile, those who will not work on April 9, 14 and 15 will be paid 100% of their salary on those days.

“If the employee did not work, he/she shall be paid 100% of his/her salary for days indicated [(basic wage + cost of living allowance) x 100%], while for work done during the regular holiday, the employee shall be paid 200% of his/her regular salary for the first eight hours [(basic wage + COLA) x 200%],” the DOLE said in a press release.

Meanwhile, those who work overtime on those days will be entitled to an additional 30% of their hourly rate.

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

Those working on a regular holiday that is the employee’s rest day will also be paid an additional 30% on top of the 200% pay.

“If an employee works on a regular holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her basic wage of 200% [(basic wage + COLA) x 200%] + [30% (basic wage x 200%)],” the Labor department said.

Likewise, those working overtime on their rest day will be given additional pay.

“For overtime work on a regular holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate on said day [Hourly rate of the basic wage x 200% x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked],” it added.

Meanwhile, for April 16 (Black Saturday) which is a special non-working day, DOLE said employers should follow these guidelines:

No pay, no work: “If the employee did not work, the ‘no work, no pay’ principle shall apply, unless there is a company policy, practice, or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on a special day.”

30% additional for those who work: “For work done during the special day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her basic wage on the first eight hours of work [(basic wage x 130%) + COLA].”

Overtime work: “For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on the said day [hourly rate of the basic wage x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked].”

Work on rest day: “If an employee works on a special day that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 50 percent of his/her basic wage on the first eight hours of work [(basic wage x 150%) + COLA].”

Overtime on rest day: “Moreover, for overtime work on a special day that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on the said day [Hourly rate of the basic wage x 150% x 130% x number of hours worked].”
