A Long Weekend for the Generals

It is going to be a long weekend for the Generals because our 70th Foundation Anniversary/Kalilangan Festival which falls tomorrow, Feb. 27, had been officially declared by Malacanang by virtue of Proclamation No. 1730 as Special Non-Working Holiday.
For the workers, since it is a special holiday,
If the day is unworked, the no work, no pay policy shall apply unless there is a favorable company policy, practice or collective bargaining agreement (CBA) granting payment on a special day even if the day is unworked.

If worked, plus 30 percent of the employee's daily rate of 100 percent shall apply on the first eight hours of work, and in excess of eight hours, plus 30 percent of the hourly rate on said day.

If the day falls on the employee's rest day and is worked, plus 50 percent of the daily rate of 100 percent shall apply on the first eight hours of work, and in excess of eight hours, plus 30 percent of the hourly rate.
I am reprinting herein the full text of Proclamation No. 1730:
MALACANANG
Manila

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE PHILIPPINES

  1. This is the reason why I am at the office at the ungodly hours of Kalilangan Celebration and my eyes droopy after the BluGre' fiesta.
