Philippine National Holidays, Personal Vacation Days and The 13th Month

We Honor The 13th Month

We honor Decree No. 851 “pro-rated for time worked for the company”, however, if your employment ends before November in any given year the 13th month will not apply or be paid.  

Background – In the Philippines, under Presidential Decree No. 851, companies pay a 13th-month payroll to all staff. That pay is equal to one month’s salary. Locally it is known as the ’13th Month’.

Philippine National Holidays

We recognize all the standard Philippine holidays and full-time (40 hours per week employees) are paid for those holidays. See holiday dates are in the table below.

Personal Vacation Days (Full-Time Employees Only)

Paid vacation time (Service Incentive Leave) of one week a year is awarded as standard after one year with the company. This must be used within the year awarded. The availability of any further vacation leave is awarded at the client’s discretion.
