Labor officials released late Wednesday the pay rules for October 31 and November 1 and 7, which Malacañang had declared as nonworking days.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) reminded employers to observe the pay rules and labor standards during these holidays.

Nov. 1, All Saints’ Day, is a nonworking day by virtue of Proclamation No. 84; while October 31 was declared a nonworking day under Proclamation No. 265.

On the other hand, November 7 was declared a regular holiday (Eid'l Adha, Feast of Holy Sacrifice) under Proclamation No. 276.

For October 31 and November 1, the pay rules to be observed are as follows:
  • If the said days are worked, an employee is entitled to 130 percent of his or her daily rate for the first eight hours, and to an additional 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on the said day for work performed in excess of eight hours.

  • If unworked, he or she is not entitled to any payment, unless there is a favorable company policy, practice, or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment for special days even if not worked.

  • If the day is worked, and it falls on the employee’s rest day, the employee is entitled for the first eight hours to 150 percent of his or her regular daily rate, and for work performed in excess of eight hours, plus 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on the said day.
For November 7, the rules to be observed are as follows:
  • If the holiday falls on an employee’s regular workday and is worked, the employee is entitled to 200 percent of his or her basic wage on the first eight hours. For work in excess of the eight hours, he or she is entitld to an additional 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on the said day.

  • If unworked, the employee is entitled to 100 percent of the regular daily rate, provided he or she was present, or was on leave with pay, on the workday immediately preceding the holiday.

  • If the day is the employee’s rest day and the day is worked, he or she is entitled to 260 percent of his or her daily rate on the first eight hours, plus 30 percent for work in excess of eight hours on the said day. If unworked, the employee is entitled only to 100 percent of his or her regular rate, provided he or she was present, or was on leave with pay, on the workday immediately preceding the holiday.

  • If the day immediately preceding the holiday is a non-work day in the establishment, or is the scheduled rest day of the employee, the employee shall not be deemed on leave of absence on that day, in which case he or she shall be entitled to the regular holiday pay.
