1 Daily Wage Calculation on Sun Sep 04, 2016 12:52 pm

Good day!

I would like to inquire regarding the matter of Daily Wage calculation. In the company I am currently employed, they determine the daily rate by dividing it with the total number of days every month saying that our rest days are paid. Is this legal? My previous company only divide the monthly rate by the actual number of working days.

I read a few sections in the Labor Codes that this kind of setting is disadvantageous for all employees. First, premiums and holiday pays are lesser since daily rate is also lesser this way. Second, for unworked regular holidays, we are entitled for a 100% pay but since they consider every day (including rest days) paid day so we don't get this extra benefits.

I hope to hear from you soon.

yes this should've been determined BEFORE you started working for them. supposedly kasi ang benefit ng all rest days are paid is exactly that, even your rest days are paid. technically the can ask you to come to work on your rest days.

when you apply for work you should ask what the daily wage is, if they tell you 20k a month. ask parin how much ang daily precisely because of this scenario.

yes this is legal. this will only be illegal if they gave you a different computation before and are now changing it.

They only provided monthly rate sa job offer. Also, I did not sign any contract aside sa job offer.
