DOLE reminds employers of pay rules on Labor Day
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) reminded private sector employers on Monday to observe the mandated wages on Labor Day.
DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III issued Labor Advisory No. 7 prescribing the payment of wages for the regular holiday on May 1.
“For work done during the regular holiday, the employee shall be paid 200% of his or her regular salary for that day for the first eight hours,” Bello said.
“For work done during a regular holiday that also falls on his or her rest day, he or she shall be paid an additional 30% of his or her daily rate of 200%,” he added.
Likewise, the DOLE chief said that employees who work overtime work should be paid an additional 30% of his or her hourly rate on said day.
In addition, employees who work overtime during a regular holiday that also falls on his or her rest day should be paid an additional 30% of his or her hourly rate, he said.
On the other hand, Bello said that employees who will not render work on Labor Day should be paid 100% of his or her salary for that day.
Labor Day was as a regular holiday under Proclamation No. 269 issued by President Rodrigo Duterte on July 17, 2017. /cbb
