MANILA, Philippines — There will be no pay for workers who choose to enjoy the special non-working days during the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in Manila next week, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) announced yesterday.

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said the “no work, no pay policy” shall apply during the ASEAN holiday break from Nov. 13 to 15 unless there is a company policy or collective bargaining agreement granting payment on a special day.

Bello said those who will report for work during the holiday break shall enjoy additional compensation from their employers.

Workers will get an additional 30 percent pay for eight hours of work and another 30 percent of hourly rate in excess of eight hours services.

“For work done during a special day that also falls on the workers’ rest day, the worker shall be paid an additional 50 percent of their daily rate on the first eight hours of work,” Bello said.

Work in excess of eight hours during a special day that also falls on the workers’ rest day shall be paid an additional 30 percent of the hourly rate, he said.
