Election Day --- May 13 declared a non-working holiday


President Benigno Aquino III signed Proclamation No. 571, s. 2013, which  declares May 13 a special public holiday.


"The President wishes to enable the Filipino people to exercise their right to suffrage," and "We enjoin all eligible to use this non-working holiday to participate in the electoral process that forms the bedrock of our democracy," Palace spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said.


More than 52 million Filipinos are registered voters for the 2013 national and local elections, Commission on Elections data show.

Under the Labor department's pay rules the following shall apply on special non-working holidays:

"a. If the day is unworked, the 'no work, no pay' principle 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.

b. If worked, the employee shall be paid an additional 30 percent of the daily rate of 100 percent on the first eight hours of work. In excess of eight hours, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of the hourly rate on said day.

c. If the day falls on the employee's rest day and is worked, he/she shall be paid an additional 50 percent of the daily rate of 100 percent on the first eight hours of work. In excess of eight hours, he/she shall be paid an additional 30 percent of the hourly rate."
