DOLE: Dec. 8 a special non-working holiday

THE workers who will report for work on Dec. 8, a special non-working day in observance of  the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, will get an additional 30 percent in their pay on that day, the Labor department said Friday.

The “no work, no pay” policy will also be in effect on that day “Unless there is a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining agreement granting payment on a special day,” the department said. 

Those who will render overtime work on Dec. 8  will be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate.

For work done during a special non-working day that also falls on the worker’s rest day, the worker will be paid an additional 50 percent of his daily rate on the first eight hours of work.

Those who will work in excess of eight hours (of overtime work) during a special non-working day that also falls on the workers’ rest day will be paid an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate.

Republic Act 10966 declared Dec. 8 as a special non-working holiday in commemoration of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, the principal patroness of the Philippines.
