Employees in the Philippines must receive their wages either every two weeks or twice a month. There should never be a gap of more than 16 days between two payment dates. Multiple rules govern how wages and salaries are paid.
13.50% + 425 PHP
Hours worked beyond the standard workweek qualify as overtime and are governed by employment contracts or collective agreements. Typically, overtime garners 125% of the standard wage. On regular holidays, employees receive twice their usual pay. For special holidays, at least a 30% pay increase is mandated. There's no cap on overtime hours. However, senior managers are not eligible for overtime compensation.
After completing one year of service, employees are entitled to 5 days of paid annual leave in addition to 10 regular public holidays. If there is no policy to carry over unused leave, it should be compensated monetarily.
Legally, employers aren't mandated to offer paid or unpaid sick leave. However, employees can use their annual leave for sickness. Many employers establish their own sick leave policies beyond the basic guidelines.
Employees contributing to the Social Security System (SSS) for at least 3 months in the past year can receive 90% of their average daily wage if hospitalized for over 3 days. Once an employee's paid sick leave is exhausted, the employer covers the initial payment, which is later reimbursed by the Social Security System.
Public and Provincial Holidays
The law mandates a notice period of at least 30 days.
13th Month Bonus
Employers are required to pay a 13th-month salary, equivalent to one month's wage (aguinaldo), by 24th December. They have the option to distribute this payment, disbursing half in June and the other half in December.
Setting up a separate business entity in every location where you plan to hire employees or a team is time-consuming and incurs high legal fees.
At the same time, navigating local labor laws and adhering to employee expectations can be a complex and challenging task, as is finding accurate and up-to-date employment information for all your potential hiring locations. Not to mention that tracking invoices and managing employee contracts through email and spreadsheets is messy and error-prone.
