1 Unpaid Weekend and Holiday Overtime on Wed Apr 16, 2014 11:48 am

Good day. I am working as a Sales Officer but thru phone on a credit card company/bank. Are we included on the exempt for Overtime regulations? We are receiving monthly salaries and allowance but we can get monetary incentives on top of it after hitting certain threshold. Everyday we are rendering 1 hour OT from Monday to Friday and around 5 hours OT on Saturdays at least twice a month. We we're just given transportation allowance and meal allowance when we finish at least 5 hours of OT on Saturdays. But those allowances evenwhen combined is much less than our regular daily wage. For meal allowance, they now require Official receipt for reimbursement but only up to 125php. Moreover, all regular holidays that were mandated last year including Independence Day we're unpaid and not even transportation or meal allowances were provided. If these are valid violations by that company, can we file a complaint even without a record? Our attendance were recorded thru a database but I guess we can have out contract and payouts to be printed online as proof.

Thanks in advance!

What's your employment status? Regular? Project-based? Consultant?

What is in your contract regarding work hours and days?

It is possible that saturday work 2x a month is part of your monthly salary so no OT pay is really given.

I'm a regular employee and had been with the company for 2 years. Our contract is just 8 working hours a day for 5 days in a week.

And by the way, that mandatory Saturday work just started last year when the goal was raised.
