What to pay your house keeper, gardener, pool maintenance man, etc.
The annual Aguinaldo and Vacation Pay is required by law and must be paid by 20 December 2016.
So what is your legal obligation for Aguinaldo?
The quick answer, says Steve, is the cash equivalent of 15 days of the the worker's daily pay, or multiply the number of days that the worker worked per week, by the number of weeks worked, times the worker's daily pay, times 15 days and divide all of that by 365 days.
And your legal obligation for Vacation Pay?
Vacation Pay is based on the length of service.
Multiply that number by the daily wage.
This is what the law requires:
1 year- 6 days
2 years- 8 days
3 years- 10 days
4 years- 12 days
5 - 9 years, 14 days
10 - 14 years, 16 days
15 - 19 years, 18 days
20 - 24 years, 20 days
25 - 29 years, 22 days
30 - 34 years, 24 days
35 - 39 years, 26 days
Steve suggests, that if you haven't honored those you employ
annually over the past years, with their rightful sums of cash,
you can make amends now, this year!
