MANILA, PHILIPPINES — June 12, 2022, or Independence Day, is a holiday in the Philippines. With this, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) reminds employers of the pay rules on regular holidays.

The Philippines will celebrate its 124th Independence Day on June 12, a regular holiday pursuant to Proclamation No. 1236 issued by President Rodrigo Duterte last October 29, 2021.

With this, Acting DOLE Secretary Atty. Ana C. Dione issued Labor Advisory No. 14 Series of 2022 to remind employers of the pay rules of regular holidays in the country. These are listed below:

Note: COLA refers to Cost Of Living Allowance.



  1. If the employee did not work, he/she shall be paid 100% of his/her wage for that day, subject to certain requirements under the implementing rules and regulations of the Labor Code, as amended [(Basic wage + COLA) x 100%];
  2. For work done during the regular holiday, the employee shall be paid a total of 200% of his/her wage for hat day for the first eight hours [(Basic wage + COLA) x 200%];
  3. For work done in excess of eight hours (overtime work), he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her hourly rate on the said day [Hourly rate of basic wage x 200% x 130% x number of hours worked];
  4. For work done during a regular holiday that also falls on his/her rest day, he/she shall be paid an additional 30% of his/her basic wage of 200% [(Basic wage + COLA) x 200%] + [30% (Basic wage x 200%)]; and
