The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has reminded employers regarding the payment of those who will work on May 14 for the village and youth council elections.

DOLE said employees who will report to work before or after exercising their rights of suffrage must be paid proper wages and benefits.

The Labor department issued Labor Advisory No. 8, Series of 2018, pursuant to Proclamation No. 479 signed by President Duterte declaring May 14 as a special non-working holiday.

Below are the rules to be followed if an employee will work on a special holiday:

-“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 (CBA) 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 (8) hours of work;”

-“For work done in excess of eight (8) 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 (8) hours of work;” and

-“For work done in excess of eight (8) 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.”
