No work, no money on December 26 and January 2.
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) announced that the “no work, no pay” policy would be put into effect on December 26, 2022, and January 2, 2023, both of which have been designated as exceptional non-working holidays.
Those who show up for work on both days, according to DOLE Secretary Bienvenido Laguesma, will receive an extra 30% of their daily wage.
In a radio interview over the weekend, he stated, “If they did not report for work, they have no compensation unless there is a separate corporate policy.”
In order to offer workers extra time to spend with their families, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. added Dec. 26 to the list of holidays on Thursday.
In order to help the nation “recover from the negative economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic” and “to encourage economic productivity by, among other things, minimizing work disruption and commemorating some special holidays as special working days instead,” Dec. 24 and Dec. 31 have been designated as “special working” days for the past two years.
Only the daily wage is due to an employee on both days.
An employee shall be paid a total of 200 percent of the daily salary for the first eight hours of the usual holidays of Christmas Day and New Year’s, as well as an extra 30 percent of the hourly rate for overtime labor.
According to Proclamation 90, January 2 would be a special non-working day in addition to December 26 because it is a Filipino tradition to visit relatives and spend time with their families.
