DOLE: ‘No work, no pay’ for October 30, November 1-2 holidays

MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Labor and Employment on Sunday reminded employers of the proper payment of wages for workers who will report to work on the upcoming holidays.

In an interview with Radyo 630, DOLE Secretary Bienvenido Laguesma said that October 30, November 1 and 2 are special non-working holidays, which means the "no work, no pay" rule will be applied.

DOLE issued last week an advisory specifying the the wage computation for the upcoming special non-working holidays. Workers will receive compensation based on the following rules:

Laguesma reminded the public that the “no work, no pay” policy may not be applied in workplaces with an alternative arrangement that still pays workers on special non-working holidays.

"There may be an existing company policy that, even if you don't come to work due to a holiday, you will still be compensated, or any similar kind of arrangement your employer has," Laguesma said in Filipino.

The 2023 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections will fall on Oct. 30, 2023.

Meanwhile, November 1 is All Saints' Day, while November 2 is All Soul’s Day and classified as an additional special non-working day.
