Holiday Pay ng Pinoy Employee

Para matutunan ang tamang paraan ng pag-compute ng holiday pay, narito ang ilan sa mga panuntuanan patungkol dito.

Sino ang entitled sa Holiday Pay?

Sa kalakhan, ang lahat ng empleyado na nagtrabaho sa loob ng regular holiday ay may karapatang tumanggap ng holiday pay alinsunod sa batas. Subalit, may ilang uri ng empleyado na hindi kabilang sa holiday pay benefits na ito, kabilang dito ang mga:

  • Mga nagtatrabaho sa retail at service businesses na may mas mababa sa 10 regular employees
  • Managerial employees
  • Managerial staff members at officers
  • Government employees
  • Kasambahay
  • Mga empleyado na nagtatrabaho base sa task, contract, o purely commission basis

Ang mga empleyadong nasasakupan ng alintuntunin ng holiday pay ay dapat tumanggap ng at  least 100% ng kanilang sweldo, magtrabaho man sila sa araw na iyon o hindi.

Regular Holiday Computation

Empleyado na hindi nagtrabaho100% ng sweldo para sa araw na iyon
Empleyado na nagtrabaho(Basic Wage x 200%) + (Cost of Living Allowance o COLA x 200%)
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa overtime**(Hourly Rate x 200%) + (260% x Number of OT Hours Worked)
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa holiday na natapat na rest day(Basic Wage x 230%) + (COLA  x 200%)
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa overtime ng holiday na natapat na rest day**(Hourly Rate x 230%) + (260% x Number of OT Hours Worked)
**Tingnan ang Panuntunan sa Working Hours

Special Non-Working Holiday Computation

Empleyado na hindi nagtrabahoNo work, no pay (maliban na lang kung may ibang sinasabi ang CBA)
Empleyado na nagtrabaho(Basic Wage x 130%) + COLA
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa overtime(Hourly Rate x 130%) + (160% x Number of OT Hours Worked)
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa holiday na natapat na rest day(Daily Rate x 150%) + COLA
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa overtime ng holiday na natapat na rest day(Hourly Rate x 150%) + (180% x Number of OT Hours Worked)

Nitong nakaraang February 26, 2021, tatlong (3) special non-working holidays ang na-reclassify sa bagong kategorya na Special Working Holiday. Ito ay ang All Souls’ Day (November 2), Christmas Eve (December 24), at ang New Year’s Eve (December 31).

Special Working Holidays Computation

Empleyado na hindi nagtrabahoNo work, no pay
Empleyado na nagtrabaho(Basic Wage x 130%) + COLA
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa overtime(Hourly Rate x 130%) + (160% x Number of OT Hours Worked)
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa holiday na natapat na rest day(Basic Wage x 150%) + COLA
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa overtime ng holiday na natapat na rest day(Hourly Rate x 150%) + (180% x Number of OT Hours Worked)

Dapat tandaan na may pagkakataon na maaring sa loob isang araw ay matatapat ang dalawang holidays. Sa ganitong pagkakataon, mangyayari ang tinatawag na double holiday pay.

Double Holiday Pay***

Empleyado na hindi nagtrabaho200%
Empleyado na nagtrabahoBasic Wage x 300%
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa overtime + 390% x Number of OT Hours Worked
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa holiday na natapat na rest dayBasic Wage x 390%
Empleyado na nagtrabaho sa overtime ng holiday na natapat na rest day + 480% x Number of OT Hours Worked
***Magiging iba ang computation kung ang isang holiday ay regular holiday at ang isa naman ay special non-working holiday. Mangyaring i-apply ang tamang percentage sa computation.
