Marking the Muslim feast Eid’l Adha, 20 July is now a regular holiday, says Malacañan.
MANILA — President Rodrigo Duterte approves proclamation 1189.
Eid’l Adha or the “Feast of Sacrifice” is an Islamic holiday that marks the end of annual pilgrimage or “hajj” to Mecca. It is to commemorate prophet Ibrahim’s conviction to sacrifice his only son to Allah.
“The observance of Eid’l Adha shall be subject to existing community quarantine and social distancing measures,” the proclamation states.
Employees who would report to work on regular holidays are to be paid 200% of their daily wage rate in the first eight hours.
Workers must receive an additional 30% of their hourly rate that day for work rendered in excess of eight hours or overtime.
Those who will not show up at work on regular holidays will still receive 100% of their rate. Further, employees who work on a regular holiday that falls on their rest day will be paid an additional 30% on top of the double pay. (MP/Headline PH)
