Expensive Legal and Non-Working Holidays

August 29, 2007 by rdagumampan

Just today I was surprised that tomorrow, Monday, August 27, 2007 is National Heroes Day, a legal holiday here in the Philippines. Getting people into work on legal holidays mandates us to pay double. I know it is normal and a fact every firm has to face but not until I became an employer, prepared schedules, and work items I realized it gets very very costly.

Just this month of August, we have here 3 holidays that all fall on weekdays, Ninoy Aquino Day, Kadayawan Festival, National Heroes Day. Since we don’t have work on Saturday and Sunday, the least three weeks of the month was slashed with 1 days each. Sigh…
