MANILA The no work, no pay policy will apply on August 21 (Wednesday), a special non-working holiday in observance of the 36th death anniversary of Senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr., the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) said on Tuesday.
If the employee did not work, the 'no work, no pay' policy shall apply unless there is another company policy, practice, or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on special days, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said in a statement.
Private sector workers who will report to work on the said day will get an additional 30 percent of their daily pay.
For work done during the special non-working holiday, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her daily rate on the first eight hours of work [(basic wage x 130 percent) + COLA], the DOLE statement read.
The following pay rules should also be observed for the special non-working holiday:
If the employee rendered work in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on the said day [hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 130 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked].
For the worker who went to work on a special holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 50 percent of his/her daily rate on the first eight hours of work [(basic wage x 150 percent) + COLA].
If he/she rendered overtime work on a special holiday that also falls on their rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on the said day [Hourly rate of the basic wage x 150 percent x 130percent x number of hours worked].
August 21 is a special non-working holiday under Proclamation No. 789, s. 2019.
