As we celebrate Feast of the Immaculate Conception on Saturday, December 8, DOLE reminded workers and employers of the conditions for payment of wages. The same will also be applied for December 24 and 31 holidays (both Monday).

According to DOLE's Labor Advisory No. 19-18, the said dates are considered “special non-working days” and that if 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.

In addition, employees who work during “special non-working days” are eligible to the following pay terms:

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

Meanwhile, for December 25 and 30 which are considered “regular holidays,” employees shall still be paid regardless if they work or not.

DOLE issued the following payment conditions:

  • If the employee did not work, he/she shall be paid 100% of his/her wagefor that day. (Basic wage + COLA) x 100%)
  • For work done during the regular holiday, the employee shall be paid 200% of his/her wage for that day for the first 8 hours (Basic wage + COLA)x 200%)
  • For work done in excess of eaight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate as on said dat (Hourly rate of the basic wage x 200% x 130% x number of hours worked)
  • For work done during a regular holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her basic wage of 200% [(Basic wage + COLA) x 200%)] + [(30% (Basic wage x 200%)]
  • For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a regular holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his hourly rate on the said day (Hourly rate of the basic wage x 200% x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked)


The payment of wages conditions were advised in accordance to President Rodrigo Duterte’s Proclamation No. 269 (list of holidays for 2018) issued last July 17, 2017 and Republic Act No. 10966 which was signed into law on December 28, 2017.
