The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in the Province of Cebu encouraged all employers to follow the law by paying holiday benefits to their workers on Sept. 9 and Sept. 12.
Various educational institutions within the Province of Cebu already declared long weekends for Sept. 9 and Sept. 12 Holidays.
September 9, 2016 was already declared as a special holiday in the Province of Cebu in connetion with the birthday celebration of the late Cebuano political leader and President of the Philippines, Sergio Osmena Sr.
September 12, 201 was already declared as a Regular Holiday in the entire Philippines in celebration of the Feast of Sacrifice by our Muslim brothers and sisters. Pres. Rody Duterte signed Proclamation 56 which was signed before the President's departure to Laos for the ASEAN Summit.
DOLE 7 Regional Director Exequiel Sarcauga released the computation for the long weekends in the Province of Cebu.
On Sept. 9 all employers are obliged to pay an additional 30 percent of the worker's salary because this is a special holiday while on Sept. 12, employers are mandated to pay 200 percent because it is a Regular Holiday.
The computation of holiday benefits is the daily salary rate multiplied by 30 percent for Sept. 9 and times 200 percent for Sept. 12,Sarcauga said.
