The labor department has issued Labor Advisory No. 10, series of 2017 pursuant to Proclamation No. 269 of President Rodrigo Duterte that declared the commemoration of the birth of the great plebeian Andres Bonifacio a regular holiday.

As such, DOLE mandates employers to implement the following pay rules on November 30:
