No work, no pay on November 1-2

MANILA, Philippines — Workers won’t be getting any pay if they choose not to report for work on All Saints’ Day, according to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). 

In an advisory, DOLE noted that Nov. 1 and 2 are special non-working days during which the “no work, no pay” principle shall apply.

“Unless there is a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining agreement granting payment on a special day, the ‘no work, no pay’ policy shall apply,” it said.

Those who report for work are entitled to an additional 30 percent of their basic daily wage for the first eight hours. For work done in excess of eight hours, workers shall get an additional 30 percent of the hourly rate. 

DOLE added that for work done during a special day that falls on the rest day, workers shall be paid an additional 50 percent for the first eight hours of their services and another 30 percent of hourly rate for work in excess of the regular time.
