DOLE issues pay rules for Ninoy Aquino Day



MANILA, Aug 14 -- Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz on Wednesday said in a statement that proper wage rules and core labor standards for workers must be observed on Thursday, 21 August 2014, which is a Special Non-Working Day across the nation marking Ninoy Aquino Day.



The labor and employment chief said that the Special Non-Working Day is by virtue of Proclamation No. 655, Series of 2013, Declaring the Regular Holidays, Special (Non-Working) Days, and Special Holiday (for all Schools) for the Year 2014.



Baldoz emphasized that the declaration of 21 August 2014 as a special non-working day was meant to remember and honor the martyrdom of the late Senator Benigno Aquino which was first proclaimed by virtue of Republic Act No. 9256.



“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,” she said.



The labor chief reminded employers to observe the following pay rules during the Ninoy Aquino Day, thus:



(a) 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;



(b) For work done during the special day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her daily rate on the first eight hours of work [(Daily Rate x 130%) + COLA);



(c) For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate on said day (Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked);



(d) 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 [(Daily rate x 150%) + COLA); and,



(e) For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a special day 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 daily wage x 150% x 130% x number of hours worked).



For inquiries about this release, please call the Bureau of Working Conditions at Tel. Nos. 527-3000 locals 303 or 307; the nearest DOLE regional office (for DOLE-NCR 400-6011); or the DOLE Hotline, 527-8000. (DOLE/End/mjlc)
