During a special non-working holiday, employees are paid at least 130% of the sum of their daily rate and cost of living allowance.

According to DOLE, a “no work, no pay” rule applies for special non-working holidays. In case the company requires an employee to report for work, or if the employee chooses to go to work, the worker gets full pay plus 30 percent of his/her basic daily rate.

For work done in excess of 8 hours, employees are also entitled to an additional 30 percent of their hourly rate.
