DOLE issues pay rules for Independence Day

As the country marks its 125th Anniversary of Independence and Nationhood, the labor department reminds private sector employers to provide proper wages to their workers on June 12.

Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Bienvenido E. Laguesma issued Labor Advisory No. 13, Series of 2023, stipulating the proper computation of workers’ wages for the declared regular holiday on June 12.

The Labor Advisory is pursuant to Proclamation No. 42, Series of 2022, as amended by Proclamation No. 90, Series of 2022, which declares the regular and special (non-working) days for 2023.

The advisory prescribes the following pay rules:

If the employees did not work, they shall be paid 100 percent of their wage for that day, provided they worked or were on leave of absence with pay on the day immediately preceding the regular holiday. The computation is basic wage x 100 percent.

When the day immediately preceding the regular holiday is a non-working day in the establishment or the scheduled rest day of the employees, they shall be entitled to holiday pay if they worked or were on leave of absence with pay on the day immediately preceding the non-working day or rest day.

Meanwhile, for work done during the regular holiday, employees shall be paid 200 percent of their wage for the first eight hours.

For overtime work, employees shall be paid an additional 30 percent of the hourly rate (hourly rate of the basic wage x 200 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).

If the employees worked on a regular holiday that also falls on their rest day, they shall be paid an additional 30 percent of the basic wage of 200 percent. The computation is basic wage x 200 percent x 130 percent.

For overtime work on a regular holiday that also falls on the employees’ rest day, they shall be paid an additional 30 percent of the hourly rate on the said day (hourly rate of the basic wage x 200 percent x 130 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).

For further queries on the payment of wages, the public is advised to call DOLE Hotline 1349, which is available 24/7. They can also call or text 0961-595-8439, from Monday-Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM.
