Araw ng Kagitingan! The government set this day as a regular holiday nationwide in the country. According to Executive Order No. 203, every 9th day of April, we must remember and honor those gallantry and valor of Filipinos during World War II.

The Department of Labor and Employment urged all private sector employers in the Philippines, to observe the proper rules and regulation regarding to its employee's salary.

Secretary Rosalinda Dimapilis-Baldoz said Friday: “I call on the country’s employers in the private sector to voluntary comply with core labor standards to ensure the social protection of our workers during this regular holiday.”

So meaning, if the employee did not work on the said date, he/she must be paid 100 percent of his/her salary. And if the employee worked on the said date, he/she must be paid 200 percent of his/her regular salary.

Here's the sample computation of holiday pay.

If the employee did not work [(Daily rate + COLA) x 100%];

If the employee worked [(Daily rate + COLA) x 200%].
