A 13th-month pay guide will be released by DOLE for employers.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) announced on Friday that it will soon be issuing an advise addressing the payment of 13th-month salary to employees working in the private sector.

To assist our employers in the payment of the 13th-month pay this year, for 2022, we will issue a labor advise. Alvin Curada, director of the DOLE’s Bureau of Working Conditions (BWC), said in a Laging Handa briefing, “We are also contacting our employers’ groups to ensure the proper payment of the 13th-month salary.

He explained that the calculation for the 13th-month pay for this year would be based on every basic wage that an employee received from January 1 to December 31 of this year.

It’ll be divided by twelve. The sum represents the 13th month’s compensation. This amounts to one-twelfth of the employee’s annual base income, or their pay for this year, according to Curada.

Workers must earn or receive their 13th month’s pay by December 24 every year in accordance with Presidential Decree 851, which the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos issued in 1975.

According to Curada, some businesses make the required money in two installments: the first half is given prior to the start of classes, typically in May, and the second half is given a few days before Christmas.

However, he said, “the employee must receive their 13th month’s pay no later than December 24 of each year.”

If they have worked for a private company for at least one month throughout the calendar year, all rank-and-file workers have the right to 13th-month compensation.

On the other hand, businesses are obliged to submit reports to DOLE via its Online Establishment Report Form regarding the settlement of the 13th-month pay by January 15, 2023.

According to BWC data, a high compliance rate of 97.1 percent was achieved in 2021 for the payment of the 13th-month salary.
