13th Month Pay in the Philippines

17

After more than 6 years of working with Filipino employees, I learned a couple things this week about the 13th month bonus custom in the Philippines.

  1. It’s LEGALLY REQUIRED! – I thought this was the case…but wasn’t completely sure.
  2. It’s supposed to be paid BEFORE Dec. 24
  3. Paying it earlier in the month is better.
  4. Paying it close to the 24th (or even after) is disrespectful and likely to anger employees (I’ve done this before!)
  5. It has specific formulas for calculating what is required!
  6. It’s NOT a Christmas bonus. A bonus is given ON TOP of the 13th month.

To my GUYS:
WHY DIDN’T YOU EVER SAY ANYTHING TO ME???
