All full-time staff are only required to complete 8hrs of work each day (inclusive of 7.5 productive hours + 30 mins paid break) following the PH labor requirement. Any excess hours are subject to an overtime pay which needs client’s approval.

If approved for the overtime pay, staff gets paid their regular hourly rate plus 25% premium on regular workdays, otherwise, premium is at 30% if overtime is rendered during PH legal holidays or during staff’s scheduled rest day.

Sample computation for staff at regular salary of PH₱25,000/month or AUD$657.89 at exchange rate of PH₱38 per AUD$1.

Daily Rate = (Base Salary x 12 months) / 261 work days in a year
$30.25 = ($657.89 x 12) / 261

Regular work days for 2 hours overtime:

Overtime Pay = [(Daily Rate / 8hrs) x Overtime Hours] + 25% Premium
$8.81 = [($30.25 / 8) x 2] + 25%

Legal PH holidays/rest day overtime for 2 hours:

Overtime Pay = [(Daily Rate / 7.5hrs) x Overtime Hours] + 30% Premium
$9.83 = [($30.25 / 8) x 2] + 30%

There is no additional cost for staff to work during regular PH holidays as we’ve incorporated that in your monthly cost. However, if you require your staff to work during AU holidays, staff will be paid a 100% premium of their daily rate.

Daily Rate = (Base Salary x 12 months) / 261 work days in a year
$30.25 = ($657.89 x 12) / 261

Using this sample computation, you will be paying an additional $30.25 which will be reflected as a separate line item on the invoice. 

Please take note that the above computation is based on the regular staff salary of PH₱25,000/month or AUD$657.89 at an exchange rate of PH₱38 per AUD$1.
