Holiday Pay Guidelines for Holy Week 2013

Mar 21, 2013


The Department of Labor and Employment issued this pay guideline for Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the Holy Week:

The correct pay rules to be observed are as follows:  

For the regular holidays on March 28 (Maundy Thursday) and March 29, 2013 (Good Friday): 
• If the employee did not work, he/she shall be paid 100 percent of his/her salary for that day. Sample computation: Daily rate + Cost of Living Allowance x 100%. The COLA is included in the computation of holiday pay. 
• If the employee worked, he/she shall be paid 200 percent of his/her regular salary for that day for the first eight hours. Sample computation: Daily rate + COLA x 200%. The COLA is also included in computation of holiday pay. 
• If the employee worked in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day. Sample computation: Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x number of hours worked. 
• If the employee worked 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. Sample computation: [(Daily rate + COLA) x 200%] + 30% Daily rate x 200%). 
• If the employee worked in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a regular holiday 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. Sample computation: Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked. 

For the special (non-working) day on 30 March 2013 (Black Saturday):
• 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. 
• If the employee worked, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her daily rate on the first eight hours of work. Sample computation: (Daily rate x 130%) + COLA). 
• If the employee worked in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day. Sample computation: 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 fifty percent of his/her daily rate on the first eight hours of work. Sample computation: (Daily rate x 150%) + COLA. 
• If the employee worked 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 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day. Sample computation: Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 150% x 130% x number of hours worked.
