THE Department of Labor and Employment (Dole) has issued pay rules for Monday's observance of the Ninoy Aquino Day.
According to Dole, an employee who rendered work on Monday shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their daily rate on the first eight hours, and additional 30 percent of their hourly rate for work done in excess of eight hours (overtime).
Meanwhile, Dole said an employee who worked on Monday despite it being their day off shall be paid an additional 50 percent of their daily rate on the first eight hours, and additional 30 percent of their hourly rate for work done overtime.
If the employee did not work, Dole stressed that the ‘no work, no pay’ principle shall apply "unless there is a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on special holidays."
To recall, Presidential Proclamation No. 269, s. 2017 declared August 21 as a special non-working day.
Ninoy Aquino Day is held every August 21 to commemorate the life and death of Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. who became the face of the opposition during the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos. (HDT/SunStar Philippines)
