    DOLE pay rules for May 1, 2021 regular holiday

    This is pursuant to Proclamation No. 1107 issued by President Rodrigo Duterte, declararing regular and special holidays for this year.

    In its Labor Advisory No. 07, series of 2021, released April 30, the DOLE said workers who would work today are entitled to a double pay.

    “However, in view of the existence of a national emergency arising from the COVID-19 situation, establishments that have totally closed or ceased operation during the community quarantine period are exempted from the payment of the holiday pay on May 1, 2021,” DOLE clarified.

    Based on existing implementing guidelines, the pay rules to be observed during the regular holiday on May 1, 2021 are as follows:

    Employees who did not work on regular holidays shall be paid 100 percent of their salary ([Basic wage + COLA] x 100 percent)], while those who worked shall be paid 200 percent of their regular salary for the first eight hours ([Basic wage + COLA] x 200 percent).

    Further, if the employees worked overtime (work done in excess of eight hours), they shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate (hourly rate of the basic wage x 200 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).

    Moreover, those who worked on a regular holiday that also fell on their rest day shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their basic wage of 200 percent [(Basic wage + COLA) x 200 percent] + [30 percent (Basic wage x 200 percent)].

    Workers who rendered overtime work on a regular holiday that also fell on their rest day shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate on said day (hourly rate of the basic wage x 200 percent x 130 percent x 130 percent x number of hours worked).
