Double Holidays and How it Affects Your Company in the Philippines


“The Double Holiday” while rare can occur when two or more holidays happen to land on the same day such as Araw ng Kagitingan falls on the same day as Maundy Thursday or Good Friday. These have a different impact on wage rates compared to typical Regular Holidays.  In the case of the Double Holiday, the covered employee shall be entitled to at least 200% of his/her basic wage even if the day is unworked. For an employee who is required to work on the Double Holiday, he or she is entitled to the 200% plus an additional 100% of the basic wage equaling 300% percent total of the basic wage. Obviously this is truly important to understand from both a managerial perspective and as an employee.
