There will be no number coding on June 17, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced on Saturday.

June 17 has been declared a regular holiday for the commemoration of Eid’l Adha or Feast of Sacrifice.

The number coding system corresponds to 1 and 2 for Monday, 3 and 4 for Tuesday, 5 and 6 for Wednesday, 7 and 8 for Thursday, and 9 and 0 for Friday. The implementation is from 7 a.m. – 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. from Monday to Friday, except during holidays.

President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has declared June 17 as a regular holiday to celebrate Eid’l Adha, the Feast of Sacrifice, as per Proclamation No. 579 signed by Executive Secretary Lucas Bersamin on June 4.

The Palace stated that Eid’l Adha is one of the two greatest feasts of Islam.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) meanwhile said private sector employees who will not report for work on June 17 are entitled to receive the full amount of their daily pay while those going on duty will be paid double.

“If the employee does not work, the employer shall pay 100% of the employee’s wage for that day, provided that the employee reports to work or is on leave of absence with pay on the day immediately preceding the regular holiday,” Secretary Bienvenido Laguesma said in a Labor advisory over the weekend.

“Where the day immediately preceding the regular holiday is a non-working day in the establishment or the scheduled rest day of the employee, he or she shall be entitled to holiday pay if the employee reports to work or is on leave of absence with pay on the day immediately preceding the non-working day or rest day (Basic wage x 100%),” the advisory added.

For those who will be present at their jobs on Monday, the employer shall pay a total of 200 percent of the employee’s wage for that day for the first eight hours (basic wage x 200%).

If duty exceeds eight hours, the employee will receive an additional 30 percent of the hourly rate on said day (hourly rate of the basic wage x 200% x 130% x number of hours worked).

For work done during a regular holiday that falls on the employee’s rest day, the employer shall pay the employee an additional 30 percent of the basic wage of 200 percent (basic wage x 200% × 130%).

Lastly, if the employee worked in excess of eight hours during a regular holiday that also falls on the employee’s rest day, the employer shall pay the employee an additional 30 percent of the hourly rate on said day (hourly rate of the basic wage x 200% × 130% x 130% x number of hours worked).

President Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr., issued Proclamation 579, Series of 2024, declaring June 17 as a regular holiday in observance of Eid’l Adha.
