Calculating Compensation: Holy Week Earnings for Holy Thursday and Good Friday Work

CEBU CITY, Philippines —  The RTWPB-7 in Central Visayas has issued a reminder to employers to adhere to the prevailing labor regulations concerning wages during the approaching Holy Week.

The national government has officially designated Holy Thursday and Good Friday, scheduled for March 28 and March 29, as regular holidays.

Black Saturday, slated for March 30, has been declared a Special Non-Working Day as per Labor Advisory No. 2, Series of 2024 issued by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

For those working during the Holy Week period, it’s essential to understand how your take-home pay is calculated.

According to the aforementioned advisory, employees who work on both Holy Thursday and Good Friday for the initial eight hours on each day are entitled to receive a total of 400 percent of their regular wages. Additionally, those who work an eight-hour shift on Black Saturday will receive an extra 30 percent on top of their salaries.

However, employees who choose not to work on Holy Thursday and Good Friday are still entitled to receive their full wages, amounting to 100 percent.

It’s important to note that the “no work, no pay” principle is applicable specifically to Black Saturday, unless a favorable company policy, established practice, or Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) grants payment for this Special Day, as highlighted by RTWPB-7.
