Many Filipinos are already preparing for the upcoming “Undas” on November 1 and 2.

KAMI learned that the Department of Labor and Employment has released an advisory for the payment of wages for November 1, 2, and 30.

In a report by the CNN Philippines, the “no work, no pay” policy shall be in effect on All Saints’ Day (November 1) and All Souls’ Day (November 2). Both days were declared as special non-working holidays.

“If the employee does not report for 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,” it read in the advisory.

According to the Manila Bulletin (author Leslie Ann Aquino), if the employee decides to work on both or either days, he or she should be paid an additional 30% of his or her basic wage for the first eight hours.

Here are the other pay rules for November 1 & 2:

  • For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime), the employee shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate.
  • For work done during these days that also fall on employee’s rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 50 percent of his/her basic wage in the first eight hours.
  • While for work done in excess of eight hours (overtime), an employee shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate.

Under the Proclamation No. 555 President Duterte signed in 2018, November 1 and 2 were declared as special non-working holidays in observance of All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day.
