DAGUPAN CITY – The public looks forward to spending a long weekend after President Rodrigo Duterte has declared September 12 (Monday) a regular holiday throughout the country in observance of Eid’l Adha or Feast of Sacrifice.
Malacañang released Proclamation No. 56 on Tuesday which emphasized that Eid’l Adha is one of the two most important feasts of Islam and that the “National Commission on Muslim Filipinos has recommended that the observance of Eid’l Adha be on 12 September.”
Eid’ l-Adha, considered holier than Eid’l Fitr, is an Islamic festival to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim (also known as Abraham) to follow Allah’s (God’s) command to sacrifice his son Ishmael as an act of submission to God’s command.
Meanwhile, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is reminding employers to observe and comply with the pay rules on the said holiday following the guidelines on the correct payment of wages of private sector workers for work done during this day.
The following pay rules shall apply for this regular holiday:
1. 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%];
2. 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%];
3. 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];

4. 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
5. 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).
