1 Holyday Pay and Vacation leaves on Thu Aug 23, 2012 3:00 am


Arresto Menor
Hi to all and good morning, i just want to ask about the compensation pay on holydays, i have been in my currect company for almost 2 years and its a BPO company, when i start working in this company the policy on holyday is that even if your shift starts at 23:00 your whole shift will compensated as 200%, and a few months ago they change this policy, and the new policy states that the number of hours you work for that day "holyday" are the only hours that is considered as 200%, they even told us that the previous policy is against the Labor code of the Phil.

My other concern is about the automatic filling of your Vacation leave, this started after the foolding due to the moonson, I was not able to go to work for 2 day because our subdivison is flooded, when i went back to our office and check my email i recieve an email from our HR personnel that the 2 days that i was not able to go in the office has been filled as vacation leave by them. They didnt even gave any financial or relief assistance to those who are affected the flooding.

Me and by colleages really need help on this matter, and we would like to thank in advance for your answers.

Thank you again and God Bleess

sorry to say that i am in agreement with the company on this one. while it is a gray area, i would indeed consider reasonable to pay premium only for the actual hours withing the day which is a holiday.

you can make an argument that if they have been providing that benefit for a long time then they cannot remove it.

except for the day declared as for no work, then it is reasonable to charge vl rather than apply no work - no pay.

as for financial and relief, i'm also sorry to say that there is no legal obligation for the company to provide that.
