Nov.29 a regular holiday - DOLE

Manila (November 25) - November 29, a Monday, is a regular holiday nationwide in accordance with existing laws and issuances affirmed by President Benigno S. Aquino III.

Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said this as she issued a labor advisory to the employees in the private sector informing them of such, including the corresponding pay rules that apply under the law.

“The nationwide holiday, known as Bonifacio Day, is being celebrated yearly in honor of the Great Plebeian and national hero Andres Bonifacio whose birth date, is November 30, 1863,” Baldoz said.

She said that while Executive No. 203 issued by the late President Corazon C. Aquino in 1987 had previously fixed the regular holiday every 30 November, Proclamation No. 1841, series of 2010, and Republic Act No. 9492 mandate that the holiday be moved to the Monday nearest the said date.

Accordingly, Baldoz, pursuant to the President’s emphasis to ensure the protection and welfare of the country’s workers under his 22-point agenda on labor and employment, employers in the country’s private sector are advised on the pay rules they must observe during the regular holiday on 29 November, consistent with the country’s Labor Code, as follows:

If the holiday falls on the employee’s regular workday, and the said day is unworked, the employee shall be entitled to 100 percent of his/her regular daily rate, provided he/she present or is on leave of absence with pay on the work day immediately preceding the holiday.

If worked, the employee shall be paid 200 percent of his/her regular daily rate. Work rendered in excess of the eight hours shall entitle the worker to an additional 30 percent of the hourly rate on the said day.

If the day falls on the employee’s rest day and is worked, he/she shall be paid 200 percent of his/her daily rate, plus 30 percent of the said rate, or a total of 260 percent on the first eight hours of work. In excess of eight hours, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of the hourly rate. (PIA-NCR)
