So what exactly are the pay rules for a SPECIAL (NON-WORKING) DAY like this, July 22, in Gensan?
The following are the pay rules for special non-working days:
- “No work, no pay” policy applies, unless there is a favorable company policy, practice, or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on a special day.
- 130% of salary that day if the employee worked WITHOUT overtime.
- Additional 30% of the employee’s hourly rate is paid if the employee worked OVERTIME. Computation formula: Hourly Rate x 130% x 130% x Number of Hours Worked). (Two 130% in the formula is NOT a typo error.)
- 150% of the employee’s salary that day if the employee worked on a special non-working day that also falls on his or her designated REST DAY without doing overtime.
- If the employee worked OVERTIME during a special non-working holiday that also falls on his or her rest day, an additional 30% of the hourly rate that day is paid to the worker. Computation formula: Hourly Rate x 150% x 130% x Number of Hours Worked. – Source: Pinoymoneytalk.com
