September 21 is a Regular Holiday

Sep 14, 2009

In case you haven't heard, September 21 has been declared a Regular Holiday throughout the country in observance of Eid'l Fitr or the Feast of Ramadan. Eid'l Fitr is celebrated by our Muslim brothers after the end of a month-long fasting.

Let us join them in the celebration and observance of this feast.

By the way, below are the guidelines on regular holiday pay from DOLE :

Every employee covered by the Holiday Pay Rule is entitled to his daily basic wage for any unworked regular holiday. This means that the employee is entitled to at least 100% of his basic wage even if he did not report for work, provided he is present or is on leave of absence with pay on the work day immediately preceding the holiday.

Work performed on that day merits at least twice (200%) the basic wage of the employee.

Where the holiday falls on the scheduled rest day of the employee, work performed on said day merits at least an additional 30% of the employee's regular holiday rate of 200% or a total of at least 260%.

There are eleven (11) regular holidays in a year under Executive Order No. 203, namely:

* New Year's Day - January 1
* Maundy Thursday - Movable Date
* Good Friday - Movable Date
* Araw ng Kagitingan - April 9
* Labor Day - May 1
* Independence Day - June 12
* National Heroes Day - Last Sunday of August
* Eidul Fitr - Movable Date
* Bonifacio Day - November 30
* Christmas Day - December 25
