Government issues pay rules for Labor Day regular holiday

Philippine Labor and Employment Secretary Arturo D. Brion said that Labor Day, May 1, 2007, is a regular holiday throughout the nation.
Brion said the 2007 Labor Day celebrates and honors the country's workers and human resources for their role in shoring up our local and global productivity, competitiveness, and status before the community of nations.
President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo led the 105th Labor Day celebration with the theme "Social Partnership for Productivity, Equity and Competitiveness" and slogan, "Galing, Husay at Talino, Handog ng Manggagawang Pilipino!"
Brion reiterated to employers nationwide the country's regular holiday rules to be observed during Labor Day as follows:
An employee will receive his or her regular wage even if he or she doesn't work on May 1, whether the day is his or her regular workday or rest day.
On the other hand, if the day is a regular workday for the employee, and the employee works on that day, he or she gets 200 percent of the regular wage for that day. If the employee works in excess of eight hours, he or she receives the hourly rate for that day (which is 200 percent of his/her regular wage divided by eight), plus 30 percent of that hourly rate.
If the day is the employee's rest day, and he or she works on that day, he or she receives 260 percent of his or her regular wage. If the employee renders overtime work, he or she receives his or her hourly rate for that day (which is 260 percent of his/her regular wage divided by 8), plus 30 percent of that rate.
