The “no work, no pay” policy shall be in effect this Saturday, December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception which is a special non-working day.
“If the employee did not work, the ‘no work, no pay’ principle shall apply unless there is a favorable company policy, practice, or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on a special day,” the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) said in Labor Advisory No. 19-18.
Being a special non-working day, the following pay rules shall also be applicable on this day
*For work done, an employee shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his daily rate on the first eight hours.
*For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime), he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his hourly rate.
*For work done during these days that also fall on employee’s rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 50% of his/her daily rate on the first eight hours.
To recall, Republic Act No. 10966 was signed into law on December 28, 2017.
The law declares December 8 of every year as a special non-working holiday in commemoration of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, the Principal Patroness of the Philippines.
