PH Overtime rate
Dear HR Community Subscribers,
We have employees who are NOT covered under Part IV of the Employment Act (EA).
And we pay them $5 or $7 per hour for overtime work even if overtime is on a public holiday.
We are reviewing the overtime rate for work during public holidays for those who are NOT covered under Part IV of the EA and appreciate your input on this.
We are in the construction industry.
HR Poll: What overtime rate do you give those working on a public holiday and not covered under Part IV of the EA?
Less than $5 per hour: 3.57%
$5 to $7 per hour: 3.57%
