The Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) has announced the rules for wages for private sector workers when the Office of the President declares a no-work day due to floods and typhoons.

Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said Tuesday the “no work, no pay rule” applied to daily wage earners in the private sector.


But “if a worker or employee works, as required by the employer, on the day declared a no-work day, the employee is entitled to premium pay for a special day equivalent to 30 percent of his or her basic pay. This premium will apply to both daily paid and monthly paid workers,” Baldoz said.
