The “no work, no pay” policy shall be in effect during All Saints’ Day on November 1 and All Souls’ Day on November 2, which are special non-working days.
This was based on Labor Advisory 15, series of 2018, released by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) prescribing the appropriate determination of holiday pay.
“If the employee does not report for 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,” read the advisory.
The pay rules for these holidays also provide the following:
*For work done on these days, an employee shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her basic wage on the first eight hours.
*For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime), the employee shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate.
*For work done during these days that also fall on employee’s rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 50 percent of his/her basic wage on the first eight hours.
*While for work done in excess of eight hours (overtime), an employee shall be paid an additional 30percent of his/her hourly rate.
Proclamation No. 555 – 2018 declared November 1 and 2 as special non-working holidays in observance of the All Saints and All Souls Days.
