This is pursuant to Proclamation No. 50, Series of 2016 signed by President Duterte declaring the said days as regular holidays.

DOLE said the following pay rules would apply for the three regular holidays:

If the employee did not work, he or she shall be paid 100 percent of his or her salary for that day ([daily rate + COLA] x 100 percent);

If the employee worked, he or she shall be paid 200 percent of his or her regular salary for that day for the first eight hours ([Daily Rate + COLA] x 200 percent);

If the employee worked in excess of hours, he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on said day (hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked);

If the employee worked during a regular holiday that also falls on his or her rest day, he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her daily rate of 200 percent [(daily rate + COLA) x 200 percent] + [30 percent (daily rate x 200 percent)];

If the employee worked in excess of eight hours during a regular holiday that also falls on his or her rest day, he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on said day (hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200 percent x 130 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).#
