Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello Says “No Work, No Pay” for November 1 & 2
Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello said that “No Work, No Pay” principle shall be applied on November 1 and 2, 2020 holiday.
The Department of Labor and Employment Secretary Silvestre Bello said in a statement that companies and employers could apply ‘no work, no pay’ policy during November 1 (All Saints’ Day) and Nov 2 (All Souls’ Day).
Bello considered the UNDAS as special non-working days and explained that employers may grant payment to workers during the holidays if there is a company policy favoring the payment.
“Unless there is a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on a special day, the no work no pay policy shall apply,” Bello said.
The DOLE secretary said that the workers who will report to work during the two holidays shall receive an additional 30 percent of their daily salary for the first eight hours. They are also entitled for an additional 30 percent of hourly rate during overtime.
If the special non-working day falls on the worker’s rest day, he/she shall receive an additional 50 percent for the first eight hours and another 30 percent of hourly rate during excess of regular working time.
