Labor and Employment Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz called on private sector employers to observe the proper pay rules for their workers on Monday, August 20; Tuesday, August 21; and Monday, August 27, these being proclaimed holidays.
August 20 is a regular holiday in view of the celebration of Eid’l Fitr, or Feast of Ramadan, while August 21 is a special non-working day it being Ninoy Aquino Day. August 27 is a regular holiday in commemoration of National Heroes Day.
The dates are declared holidays pursuant to Proclamation Nos. 295 and 495 issued by President Benigno Aquino III on November 24, 2011 and August 13, respectively.
“I urge our private sector employers to comply with the labor advisory on the payment of correct wages and benefits on these holidays. We owe it to our workers, who will be required to report for work and, therefore, must receive the correct wages and benefits,” Baldoz said.
The labor chief also directed concerned officials of the DOLE, including the Bureau of Working Condition and the DOLE regional offices to widely disseminate the correct information on the computation of holiday pay to all workers in the private sector using all available media.
Both the advisory and the questions and answers are uploaded in the DOLE website, http://www.dole.gov.ph.
