Tomorrow, November 1, 2010, or All Saints Day in the Philippines was previously declared as a special non-working holiday.

As published on local news sites today, Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz is reminding the public and employers that tomorrow, (Monday, November 1, 2010) is a special non-working holiday nationwide.

The Labor secretary also emphasized that the payment policy for such occasion should strictly be followed.

Below is the salary computation for any special non-working holiday like November 1, 2010, according to the present Labor Law of the Philippines.

A ‘no work, no pay’ policy is being applied, unless the employer has previously announced a special payment for holidays even if the employee di not report for work, or what is often called as Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

On the other hand, workers who will work tomorrow should receive a 30% additional payment of their daily pay for the first eight hours.

If the worker will work for more than eight hours on a special non-working holiday like November 1, he should be paid additional 30% of their hourly rate.

However, there are cases where the holiday falls on the scheduled day-off (rest day) of the worker but his employer requires him to report for work.

In such cases, he or she should get an additional 50% of his daily wage for the first eight hours of work and additional 30% of his hourly rate if he will render overtime.

Likewise, the above policy will be applied to the last day of the year, which is December 31, 2010, also a special non-working holiday.
