PIA Press Release

DOLE reminds private employers to submit report on compliance with 13th month pay law

By Freddie G. Lazaro

Vigan City (November 18) -- The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) had reminded all private imployers to submit their report of compliance with Presidential Decree 851 or the 13th Month Pay Law not later than January 15 next year.

According to DOLE Region 1 Director Henry John S. Jalbuena, Labor Secretarty Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz has issued on November 5, 2010 a Department Advisory (DA) No. 3 asking all covered private employers to submit their report on compliance to PD 851.

"The DA No. 3 reminds all covered employers to comply with section 8 of the Rules and Regulations implementing PD No. 851 which provides that every covered employer shall make a report of his compliance with the Decree to the nearest Regional Office not later than January 15 of each year," Jalbuena said.

He said that the compliance report should contain the following information: name of establishment; address; principal product or business; total employment; total number of workers benefited; amount granted per employee; total amount of benefits granted; name; position and telephone number of person giving information.

"This reportorial requirement is a means to determine whether or not employers are complying with the 13th month pay law," Jalbuena explained, adding that the DOLE is steadfast in pursuing its mandate under President Benigno S. Aquino III's 22-point labor policy agenda of promoting the constitutionally protected rights of workers.

PD 851 mandates employers to release the 13th month pay of their employees not later than December 24 of every year.

Unlike the Christmas bonus which is discretionary, Jalbuena said the 13th month pay is mandatory, and should not be less than 1/12 of the total basic salary earned by an employee within a calendar year. (PIA Ilocos Sur) [top]
