‘No work, no pay’ for Nov. 1, Nov. 2–DOLE

ONLY workers who opt to work during the long weekend in this year’s observance of Undas will get additional pay, according to the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) said.

In an advisory, Labor Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III said a “no work, no pay” rule will take effect on November 1 (All Saints’ Day) and  2 (All Souls’ Day).

“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,” Bello said.

During the holiday, employees, who on duty will be paid an additional 30 percent of their basic pay for the first eight hours of work.

If they will render overtime, they will get an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate on the same day.

They will also be entitled to 50 percent of their basic wage if the special day falls on their rest day.

In Proclamation  555, President Duterte declared November 1 and 2 as special nonworking holidays to allow Filipinos to commemorate the Christian festival of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day,

Filipinos, who are mostly Christian, usually spend both holidays by visiting the graves of their departed loved ones.
