1 Time of Payment on Wed Apr 06, 2016 9:35 pm


Arresto Menor
Hi everyone... I'm a newbie here... I need a legal advise about the time of payment according to our LABOR CODE. It says in our code:

ART. 103. Time of payment. - Wages shall be paid at least once every two (2) weeks or twice a month at intervals not exceeding sixteen (16) days. If on account of force majeure or circumstances beyond the employer’s control, payment of wages on or within the time herein provided cannot be made, the employer shall pay the wages immediately after such force majeure or circumstances have ceased. No employer shall make payment with less frequency than once a month.

What does the last sentence mean? I have my understanding about it and I need to confirm it from someone who knows about our law here in the Philippines...

The reason I'm asking is that my company is paying us once a month only. It is really troublesome for me. Can anyone enlighten me about this?
