The Philippines, a predominantly Catholic nation, will be celebrating the annual Holy Week next week. The highlight of the Lenten Season are the following dates:

April 2, 2015 – Maundy Thursday

April 3, 2015 – Good Friday

April 4, 2015 – Black Saturday

April 2 and 3 are both declared as regular national holidays while April 4 is a special non-working holiday. That is stipulated in President Benigno Aquino III’s Proclamation 831, which was released July last year. The declaration effectively gives Filipinos a rare four-day weekend.

The pay rules for these days are discussed below, as taken from the Statutory Handbook on Workers’ Statutory Benefits released by the Department of Labor and Employment
