If you are an employee of the Philippines, you are probably familiar with the different holidays and time-offs that it can give you. If not, then you should now start to familiarize yourself because these days can offer you rest or bigger pays. Out of all the 365 days of the whole year, some of these days can offer treats that would greatly benefit you. So to cut things short, what are the different holidays that are considered here in the Philippines?
Before we get to that, let us first run through the different types of holidays here in our country and how it differs in terms of pay for you.
Regular Holidays are holidays that have fixed dates such as New Year’s Day, Christmas Day, etc. while the Special non-working Holidays are the ones that are more flexible. They can be adjusted by the congress and there can be declarations regarding these holidays.
