Punishement for Tardiness & Computation of Daily Rate

Atty. Good morning.

First post ko po.

I would like to inquire if an employer is allowed to deduct a fix amount, let us say P50.00, whenever an employee is late for about 1 minute to 15 minutes?

Secondly, for determining the daily rate of a monthly employees, is dividing it by 30 fair and reasonable? The computation as shown below:

Daily Rate = Monthly Rate / 30

They use the answer here as the basis for the computation of our Overtime rate.

Thanks in advance
