DOLE Pay Rules for February 25 for Private School Workers

DOLE issues pay rules for private school workers on February 25.

Secretary of Labor and Employment Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz yesterday made it clear that the commemoration of the EDSA Revolution anniversary on February 25, 2013, is a special holiday only for all schools.

The labor and employment chief said that this is consistent with President Benigno S. Aquino III’s Proclamation No. 459, s. 2012, declaring the regular holidays, special (non-working) days, and special holiday (for all schools) for the year 2013, which he issued on August 16, 2012.

In this light, Baldoz said that for private establishments nationwide, February 25 is an ordinary workday.

“Therefore, no premium is required to be paid for work in establishments on said day,” said the labor chief.

Baldoz, however, emphasized that employees in private schools, whether academic or administrative personnel, shall be paid in accordance with the rules for pay on special (non-working) days as stated in Labor Advisory No. 06, Series of 2012.

The labor advisory specifically states that, “for the private school, employees, whether academic or administrative personnel, shall be paid in accordance with the rules for pay on special (non-working days)” as follows:

• If the 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.

• If the employee worked, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her daily rate on the first eight hours of work.
Sample computation: [(Daily rate x 130%) + COLA).

• If the employee worked in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day.
Sample computation: (Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked).

• If the employee worked during a special day that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional fifty percent of his/her daily rate on the first eight hours of work.
Sample computation: [(Daily rate x 150%) + COLA].

• Finally, if the employee worked in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a special day that also falls on his or her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his/her hourly rate on said day.

Sample computation: (Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 150% x 130% x number of hours worked).
