13th month pay is a mandated by law given to each employee employed in the company either contractual or regular. This is the case, hired date is January 2014 and he is filling his resignation up to end of August. I do believe that he can claim his 13th month pay ? computed from January up to August. please advise. thanks.

depends on situation.
generally termination may mean involuntary separation, thus not eligible for separation pay.

the general rule regarding hours worked is 8 hours per day, not 40 hours per week. (art 83)
the other rule prescribed is for at least 1 rest day per week (art 91)

nope. but look, shall hold regular office hours for eight hours a day, for five (5) days a week.

if this is the case. 6 days a week, business is not inline on health. , 6 days is equivalent to normal wage? as stated below, it should have 30% of the additional salary.

the 8 hrs x 5 days as mentioned is for health personnel.

1st bottom line is overtime is paid for work in excess of 8 hours in a day.

2nd bottom line is 1 day rest day per week which translates to 8 hrs x 6 days work. anything in excess is overtime (rest day work, etc)
