    Di na daw national holiday ang 27 at 28 Nov? o holiday pa rin sa pay rules lang ang may correction?...
    November 27, 28 holidays only in ARMM, DOLE clarifies

    10/30/2009 | 05:28 PM



    Eid'l Adha, which falls on November 27 and 28, is a regional holiday that applies only to the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) clarified Friday.

    Labor Secretary Marianito Roque issued the clarification as he stressed the two days are not to be observed as holidays throughout the country.

    "As a result of Proclamation No. 1808-A, the pay rules for regular holidays will not apply during the said dates except in ARMM," he advised the country's employers.

    Roque said the new issuance effectively amended the earlier Proclamation No. 1808 issued last April 21, which had declared November 28 and 29 this year as national holidays.

    In effect, he added, there will only be three holidays nationwide this November by virtue of the earlier Presidential Proclamation No. 1699 issued on December 24, 2008.

    These include All Saints' Day as a special non-working day on November 1; the additional special non-working day on November 2; and Bonifacio Day as a regular holiday on November 30.

    Roque reiterated to employers in the country's private sector the pay rules that must be observed during the said nationwide holidays.

    For the special non-working days on November 1 and 2:

    * If worked, an employee is entitled to 130% of his [or her] daily
    rate for the first 8 hours, and to an additional 30% of his or her
    hourly rate on the said day for work performed in excess of 8 hours;

    * If unworked, he or she is not entitled to any payment, unless there
    is a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining
    agreement (CBA) granting payment for special days even if not worked;

    * If worked and falling on the employee's rest day, the employee is
    entitled for the first 8 hours to 150% of his or her regular daily
    rate, and for work performed in excess of 8 hours, plus 30% of his or
    her hourly rate on the said day.

    For the regular holiday on November 30:

    * If the holiday falls on an employee's regular workday and it is
    worked, [the employee] is entitled to 200% of his [or her] basic wage
    for the first eight (8) hours and, for work in excess of the 8 hours,
    to an additional 30% of his or her hourly rate on the said day;

    * If unworked, the employee is entitled to 100% of his or her regular
    daily rate, provided he or she was present or was on leave with pay on
    the workday immediately preceding the holiday.

    * If the day is the employee's rest day and it is worked, the employee
    is entitled, for the first 8 hours, to 200% of his or her daily rate
    plus 30% and, for work in excess of 8 hours, plus 30% of his or her
    hourly rate on the said day;

    * If unworked, the employee is entitled to 100% of his or her regular
    daily rate, provided he or she was present or was on leave with pay on
    the workday immediately preceding the holiday.

    * Where the day immediately preceding the holiday is a non-work day in
    the establishment or the scheduled rest day of the employee, he or she
    shall not be deemed on leave of absence on that day, in which case he
    or she shall be entitled to the holiday pay.

    Any clarifications regarding the pay rules may be made with the DOLE's Bureau of Working Conditions (BWC) at tel. no. 527-3000 local 301.

    Maybe the Muslims in Metro Manila didn't pledge their support for the administration candidates?

    Ganyan naman ang Malacanang.

    Maga-announce, tapos babawiin, kung may grupong magri-reklamo. Dapat isipin na muna nila kasi ng maiigi, bago mag-announce ng isang bagay. Lumalabas tuloy silang katawa-tawa.

    Hindi maganda sa negosyo ang maraming holidays. If ever, holidays should be lessen. Too many heroes day, religious days, etc.

    Religious holidays should be granted as special leaves. Not everyone is a member of all denomination and granting say 4 leaves for religious reasons (say for a Catholic that would be 2 days for Holy Week and 1 for Christmas and another for Feast of the Immaculate Conception) should be enough.

    We just have too many national holidays (including special holidays) and these weaken our competitiveness in business.

    [SIZE=4]Palace apologizes for holiday recall
    [/SIZE]
    By Marvin Sy (The Philippine Star) Updated November 03, 2009 12:00 AM


    MANILA, Philippines - Malacañang apologized yesterday for recalling two national holidays originally set for the end of November and explained that the decision was prompted by a clamor from the business sector.

    Press Secretary Cerge Remonde made the clarification over a radio interview about the decision of President Arroyo to cancel her previous declaration of Nov. 27 and 28 as national holidays for the celebration of the Muslim feast of Eid’l Adha.

    The amendment was contained in Proclamation No. 1808-A, issued last Oct. 26, which declared Nov. 27 and 28 as regional holidays in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

    This came more than six months after the President issued Proclamation 1808 declaring the two days as national holidays.

    “We apologize to those who have been inconvenienced by the change,” Remonde said.

    The Palace decision caught a lot of the workers by surprise and forced several of them to make changes in their plans for the long weekend they were supposed to enjoy at the end of the month.

    When the original proclamation came out, most of the country’s workforce already made plans for a long vacation starting from Friday (Nov. 27) to Monday (Nov. 30), which is Bonifacio Day.

    Now they would have to cancel or amend their plans since only Nov. 30 is left as a national holiday.

    Remonde explained that several businesses appealed to Trade Secretary Peter Favila to amend Proclamation 1808 and confine the celebration of Eid’l Adha to the ARMM.

    The business sector argued that there were already so many holidays for this month and having so many days off would result in a severe drop in productivity.

    On top of this, they noted that they are still making up for the losses incurred from the recent storms that hit the country, including storm “Ondoy,” which battered Metro Manila last September.

    Several businesses were forced to suspend operations for weeks because of the damage brought about by the storms.

    Remonde said that the President considered the concerns of the business sector as well as the impact of the two holidays on the economy in coming up with her decision.

    Republic Act 9492 or the law rationalizing the country’s holidays actually states that the feast of Eid’l Adha is celebrated as a regional holiday in the ARMM.

    However, in spite of what was stated in the law, the President came out with Proclamation 1808 last April and argued that the Muslim feasts should be given equal importance to the Christian feasts such as Christmas Day, Easter Sunday and All Saints’ Day, which are all national holidays.
