CALOOCAN CITY, (PIA) -- Employees who will work on the special non-working days on February 1 (Chinese New Year) and February 25 (EDSA People Power Revolution Anniversary) are entitled to additional wages, the labor department reminded employers.

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III issued Labor Advisory No. 3, Series of 2022, to guide employers and employees alike on the proper computation of premium pay for the said special non-working days.

Premium pay refers to the additional compensation for work performed within eight hours on non-workdays, such as special days, Bello said.

Under the labor advisory, employees who will report for work on the said days shall be paid an additional 30 percent of their basic wage on the first eight hours of work. (DOLE/PIA-NCR)
