DOLE reminds employers of Holiday Pay Rules


The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) reminds employers to implement the correct pay rules for the Labor Day tomorrow, May 1.

In the set Holiday pay rules from DOLE, an employee will receive Two hundred percent of his daily wage if he reports to work that falls on a holiday.

If it goes beyond his usual eight hours, he will receive an additional 30 percent from his hourly rate.

If the employee didn’t show up for work on that day, he will still receive his one hundred percent regular daily rate.

If the said holiday falls on an employee’s day off and that said employee reported for work, he will then receive 260 percent of his daily rate on his first eight hours and an additional of 30 percent on his over time.    (with report from Boy Gonzales)
