Solon seeks salary adjustment for factory and office workers
by House of Representatives of the Philippines

Workers in factories and offices could soon get higher pay and additional benefits under a bill adjusting their salaries and upgrading their working conditions.

Rep. Catalina Cabrera Bagasina (Party-list, ALE), author of House Bill 5324, said the bill seeks to increase the workers overtime pay, premium pay, holiday pay and maternity leave benefits.

The bill seeks to amend Book III of Presidential Decree 442, otherwise known as the Labor Code of the Philippines.

“It is deemed proper to adjust the remuneration of laborers and employees due to the rising prices of basic commodities and increasing rate of living standards,” Bagasina said.

Under this measure, workers in the factories and offices shall be given the option to work full time or part time.

The bill provides that a night shift differential shall be paid, from 10 to 30 percent of the regular wage for each hour worked between eight o’clock in the evening and six o’clock in the morning.

Overtime work beyond eight hours a day shall be paid equivalent to their regular wage plus an additional 30 percent of his or her regular wage.
