The labor and employment chief said the Special Non-Working Day is by virtue of President Benigno S. Aquino III’s Proclamation No. 655 Declaring the Regular Holidays, Special (Non-Working) Days, and Special Holiday (for all schools) for the year 2014, which he issued on September 25, 2013.

“All Saints Day is truly one of the country’s most cherished traditions,” said Baldoz, adding:

“The proper observance of the pay rules and core labor standards on this Special Non-Working Day promotes decent work, the productivity of workers, and competitiveness.”

Thus, the labor chief reminded the country’s private sector employers on the guidelines on proper pay rules to be observed on All Saints Day, Saturday, 1 November, as follows:

(1) 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;

(2) For work done during the special day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his or her daily rate on the first 8 hours of work [(Daily Rate x 130%) + COLA)];

(3) For work done in excess of 8 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);

(4) For work done during a special day that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 50% of his/her daily rate on the first 8 hours of work [(Daily Rate x 150%) + COLA]; and,

(5) For work done in excess of 8 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).
