DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/14 July) – The Secretary of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has issued a reminder to employers to “observe and comply with the pay rules” on Eid’l Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, a regular holiday nationwide.

Labor Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz also issued guidelines on the “correct payment of wages” of private sector workers, during Eid’l Fitr.

Since 2002, Eid’l Fitr has been declared a regular national holiday as mandated by RA 9177. Muslims celebrate Eid’l Fitr for three days after a month-long fasting.

President Benigno Simoen Aquino II issued Proclamation 1070 on July 6, declaring July 17, the expected end of the Ramadan, a holiday.

The Proclamation said “the entire Filipino nation should have the opportunity to joint their Muslim brothers and sisters in peace and harmony in the observance and celebration of Eid’l Fitr.”

Ei’dl Fitr is declared a holiday “to bring the religious and cultural significance of the Eid’l Fitr to the fore of national consciousness.”

In a press release Tuesday, the DOLE cited the pay rules for Eid’l Fitr, based on the regular holiday, and provided these guidelines:

* If the employee did not work, he or she shall be paid 100 percent of his or her salary for that day [(Daily Rate + Cost of Living Allowance) x 100%];

* For work done during the regular holiday, the employee shall be paid 200 percent of his or her regular salary for that day for the first eight hours [(Daily Rate + Cost of Living Allowance) x 200%];

* For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on said day  [(Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x number of hours worked];

* For work done during a regular holiday that also falls on his or her rest day, he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his her daily rate of 200 percent [(Daily Rate + Cost of Living Allowance) x 200%] + [30% (Daily Rate x 200%)]; and

* For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a holiday that also falls on his or her rest day, he or she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of his or her hourly rate on said day (Hourly rate of the basic daily wage x 200% x 130% x 130% x number of hours worked. (MindaNews)
