DOLE said in Labor Advisory No. 27-2020 that the  following pay rules shall apply on that 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.

— For work done during the special day, the employee shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their basic wage on the first eight hours of work.

— For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), the employee shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate on that day.

— For work done during a special day that also falls on the employee’s rest day, they shall be paid an additional 50 percent of their basic wage on the first eight hours of work.

— For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a special day that also falls on their rest day, the employee shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate on that day.

However, the Labor department said in view of the existence of a national emergency arising from the COVID-19 situation, employers are allowed to defer payment of the holiday pay until such time that the present emergency situation has abated and the normal operations of the establishment is in place.

It added that establishments that have totally closed or ceased operations during the community quarantine period are exempted from the payment of the holiday pay.
