The Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) said the “no work, no pay” policy shall be in effect on Tuesday, December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a special non-working day.

“If the employee did not work, the ‘no work, no pay’ principle shall apply unless there is a favorable company policy, practice, or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on a special day,” the DoLE said in Labor Advisory No. 32-2020.

Being a special non-working day, the following pay rules shall also be applicable on the said day.

-For work done during the special day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her basic wage on the first eight hours of work.

-For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate said day.

-For work done during a special day that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 50% of his/her basic wage on the first eight hours of work.

-For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work) during a special day that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate on said day.

Republic Act No. 10966, which was signed into law in 2017, declares December 8 of every year as a special non-working holiday in commemoration of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, the Principal Patroness of the Philippines.
