Holiday pay rules image by LG ElamparoWorkers who will go on duty during Maundy Thursday, April 2, and Good Friday, April 3, will receive double pay.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) said on Tuesday, March 31, that since Maundy Thursday and Good Friday were regular holidays, those who will report to work shall be paid twice their daily rate.

“For work done during the regular holiday, the employee shall be paid 200 percent of his/her regular salary for that day for the first eight hours,” read Labor Advisory No. 18-2015 issued on March 25.

For overtime work on the same day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day.

For work done during a regular holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her daily rate of 200 percent and, an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day for work done in excess of eight hours.

But if the employee did not work, he/she shall be paid 100 percent of his/her salary for that day.

To those who will work on April 4 (Black Saturday), which is a special non-working day, the following pay rules shall apply:

* For work done during the special non-working days, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her daily rate on the first eight hours of work; and an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day for overtime work.

* For work done during a special day that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 50 percent of his/her daily rate on the first eight hours of work; and an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day for work done in excess of eight hours.

But if the employee did not work, the “no work, no pay” principle shall apply.

“Unless there is a favorable company policy, practice, or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on a special day,” read the DOLE advisory.
