As the Philippines hosted the 30th #ASEANSummit from April 26–30, President Rodrigo Duterte declared April 28, 2017, a special (nonworking) day in Metro Manila (NCR).
The Department of Labor and Employment, pursuant to the president’s proclamation (Proclamation 197), released its advisory on pay rules that apply on April 28 as a Special Holiday.
The released Labor Advisory No. 4, s. 2017 (click here to read the Labor Advisory.) advises employers the following pay rules on April 28, 2017 (Special Holiday):
- If the employee did not report to work or had no work that day, a “no work, no pay” applies; unless there is an existing company practice granting payment on Special Holiday.
- If the employee worked on that day, a 30% additional pay to his or her daily rate on the first 8 hours. [(Daily Rate x 130%) + COLA]
- If the employee rendered an overtime, an additional 30% of his or her hourly rate. (Hourly rate of the basic daily rate x 130% x 130% x Number of hours worked or OTd time)
- If that day was the employee’s rest day and he or she reported to work, a 50% of his or her daily rate on the first 8 hours is added. [(Daily rate x 150%) + COLA)
- If the employee rendered an overtime on that day, which was also his or her rest day, an additional 30% of his or her hourly rate. (Hourly rate of the basic daily rate x 150% x 130% x Number of hours worked or OTd time)
