"MAY PASOK" - Do not expect for extra pay if you report to work on September 3.
The National Wages and Productivity Commission cleared on their Facebook post there is no additional pay for workers who will report to work on September 3.
“When a day is declared a special working holiday, it means that the offices are open and schools have classes,” it reads.
“It also means that there is no additional pay for workers who will report to work.”
This is after the declaration of President Rodrigo Duterte making September 3 is a special public holiday in commemoration of the surrender of the Japanese military forces led by General Tomoyuki Yamashita in Baguio City in 1945 marked as the end of World War II in the Pacific.
President Duterte signed the Republic Act No. 11216 on February 14 and stated that, “September 3 of every year is hereby declared as a special working holiday throughout the country, in commemoration of the surrender of Japanese forces led by General Tomoyuki Yamashita at the American Commissioner’s Residence Camp in John Hay, Baguio City.”
