on

The Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) has given private sector employers until 15 January to submit their compliance reports relative to the 13th month pay of their employees.

Bello also reminded the employers to give their employees their 13th month pay on or before 24 December as stated in Presidential Decree 851.

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III said every covered employer shall make a report of his/her compliance to the nearest regional office, containing the name of the establishment, address and its principal product or business.

It must also have total number of workers who received the payment, the amount granted per employee, total amount of benefits given and the name, position and contact number of the person who provided the information.

Bello also reminded the employers to give their employees their 13th month pay on or before 24 December as stated in Presidential Decree 851.

PD 851 otherwise known as Thirteenth Month Pay Law requires all employers to pay their employees with a month equivalent salary on or before 24 December of every year.

However, with the consent of employees, employers may give half of the pay every June and the other half every December.

The labor chief also noted all rank-and-file employees in the private sector, regardless of their position, designation or employment status, must be given 13th month pay, as long as they worked at least one month during the entire
year.
