THE Depart­ment of La­bor and Em­ploy­ment (Dole) on Sat­ur­day re­minded pri­vate sec­tor em­ploy­ers to pay em­ploy­ees the proper wages dur­ing the three-day Asean hol­i­day next week.

Mala­cañang has de­clared Novem­ber 13 to 15 as spe­cial non-work­ing days in the Na­tional Cap­i­tal Re­gion, and the prov­inces of Bu­la­can and Pam­panga in time for the coun­try’s host­ing of the 31st Asean Sum­mit.

Be­cause of this, the Dole said the fol­low­ing pay rules must be ob­served: If an em­ployee did not work, the “no work, no pay” prin­ci­ple shall ap­ply un­less there is a fa­vor­able com­pany pol­icy, prac­tice, or col­lec­tive bar­gain­ing agree­ment grant­ing pay­ment on a spe­cial day.

For work done dur­ing the spe­cial day, the work­ers shall be paid an ad­di­tional 30 per­cent of their daily rate on the first eight hours of work.

For work done in ex­cess of eight hours (over­time work), the work­ers will be paid an ad­di­tional 30 per­cent of their hourly rate on said day.

For work done dur­ing a spe­cial day that also falls on the work­ers’ rest day, they shall be paid an ad­di­tional 50 per­cent of their daily rate on the first eight hours of work.

For work done in ex­cess of eight hours (over­time work) dur­ing a spe­cial day that also falls on the work­ers’ rest day, they shall be paid an ad­di­tional 30 per­cent of their hourly rate on said day. (YJG/SunS­tar Philip­pines)
