1 Overtime Pay.. Please help on Tue Sep 24, 2013 11:55 am


Arresto Menor

AS of the moment we're really confused about our overtime pay. all of a sudden after 15 years nagbago ng computation.. The scenario is this,

1. Factor Rate daw po namin is 365 days.. meaning daw po bayad daw po lahat ng araw namin?
2. We are rendering 45 hours per week na working hours. ( 9 hours a day monday to friday para daw po hindi na kami pumasok ng saturday)
3. Pag pumasok daw po kami ng saturday and sunday .3 lang ang factor rate ng OT pay , premium daw po ang tawag dito since we are already paid na nga daw po the whole year. after 8 hours tsaka lang daw po kami magkakaron ng factor rate na 1.69..

Sabi nila naginquire na daw po sila sa labor at tama daw po ito.. pero magulo pa din po kasi sa pagkakaexplain nila.. Hope may makatulong po.

Magandang araw po.

Based on the facts, your company adopted what we call a "Compressed Workweek Scheme". Instead of the normal number of workdays which is six days a week (or 48 hours a week based on the normal workday of eight hours a day), yung normal workweek is reduced to less than six days but the total number of normal work hours per week shall remain at 48 hours, kaya mag-iincrease yung workhours nyo per day. In your case, 5 araw kayo pumapasok or 45 hours a week or 9 hours per day. Ito po ay pinapayagan nang batas. In such arrangement, the law allows the increase of workhours to more than 8 hours "without corresponding overtime premium".

Magiging entitled lang po kayo sa overtime premium if work is performed "beyond 12 hours a day or 48 hours a week", in your case, if you work on a saturday or sunday. Yung .3 na factor ay ung +30% overtime premium na matatanggap mo considering that sat or sun may be considered as rest day nyo.

Yung 1.69% na factor rate may have been computed as follows:

Work on rest day (Sat/Sun) = wage + 30% = 1.30
Overtime work on rest day = wage + 30& = 1.30
Total pay during sat/sun = 1.30 * 1.30 = 1.69

So ang sweldo nyo po pag Sat/Sun is 1.69 * your normal pay.

Sana po nakatulong. Very Happy
