This year’s Labor Day celebration is the 110th in Philippine history and is being commemorated in honor of all Filipino workers on the theme, “Pagtutulungan. Pagbabago. Disenteng Trabaho.”

DOLE urged all employers in the country’s private sector to bear at heart the welfare and protection of workers by observing the pay rules and other general labor standards for the regular holiday.

Pay rules to observe are as follows:
If the holiday falls on an employee’s regular workday
If the day is worked, the employee is entitled to 200 percent of his basic wage on the first eight (8) hours and, for work in excess of eight hours, to an additional 30 percent of his hourly rate on the said day. If un-worked, the employee is entitled to 100 percent of the regular daily rate, provided he was present, or was on leave with pay, on the workday immediately preceding the holiday.

If the day is the employee’s rest day
If the day is the employee’s rest day and the day is worked, he is entitled to 260 percent of his daily rate on the first eight hours, plus 30 percent for work in excess of eight hours on the said day. If un-worked, the employee is entitled to only 100 percent of his regular rate, provided he was present, or was on leave with pay, on the workday immediately preceding the holiday.

Finally, in case the day immediately preceding the holiday is a non-work day in the establishment, or is the scheduled rest day of the employee, the employee shall not be deemed on leave of absence on that day, in which case he or she shall be entitled to the regular holiday pay.
