Wage Commission: Triple pay awaits employees who will work on April 9 ‘double holiday’

Employees who will report to work on April 9 will get triple pay or 300% of their salary for that day because it falls on two holidays – Araw ng Kagitingan and Maundy Thursday. This is according to the National Wages and Productivity Commission (NWPC).

April 9, which falls on a Thursday, is a double regular holiday. This is based on Proclamation No. 845 signed by President Rodrigo Duterte last November.

NWPC posted the following on their Facebook page.

“If you report to work, you are entitled to 300% of your daily wage rate,” NWPC said.

Moreover, employees whose day off falls on April 9 and are required to report to work on that day would receive 390% pay.

Employees who are assigned on the night shift on April 9 will receive 330% and those who would hold overtime during the double holiday will get 390% pay.

Employees who won’t work on that day will receive 200% of their daily salary.
