Saturday, November 2, 2013
OROQUIETA CITY – Nov. 1, All Saints Day, Friday is a special non-working day, pursuant to Proclamation No. 459 issued by President Benigno S. Aquino III.
Saturday, Nov. 2, falling between Nov. 1 and Sunday, Nov. 3, has also been declared a special, non-working day throughout the country to give full opportunity to the people to properly observe All Saints Day with all religious fervor, which invariably requires them to travel to and from different regions in the country.
As such, the policy of “no work, no pay” will apply to the daily-paid workers on these dates pursuant to Labor Advisory No. 06, s. of 2012, concerning the computation of the worker’s pay during special non-working days in 2013.
Issued by Secretary Rosalinda Dimapiles-Baldoz of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), the advisory specifies that if the employee did not work on that day, 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.
Meanwhile, Jose G. Robles, DOLE Provincial Director of Misamis Occidental, said the following computation will be used in determining the daily wages of the employees on such dates:
If the employee worked, he/she shall be paid\ an additional 30 percent of his/daily rate on the first eight (8) hours of work [(Daily rate x 130%) + COLA].
If the employee worked in excess of eight (8) hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day (hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked).
If the employee worked 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 (8) hours of work [(Daily rate x 150%) + COLA].
If the employee worked in excess or eight (8) hours (overtime work) during 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 said day (Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 150 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).
