The day rate is calculated as the fixed monthly rate x 12 months / 261 working days.

The standard Outsourced policy is 10 sick leave (SL) and 10 vacation leave (VL) days within the first year and 10 sick and 15 vacation days after 2 years of service. This is on-top of the regular Philippines holidays. Staff vacation days are taken only after client approval. Unused leave days (SL/VL) are charged annually to the client at the day rate.

If the staff are required to work on a Philippine regular holiday a small premium will be payable to the staff and invoiced to the client. The Client is required to pay 200% of the standard day rate if they require their staff to work on a ‘Regular Holiday’ or 130% for a ‘Special Non Working Day’.

In case of employment termination due to redundancy, staff are entitled to separation pay of one month’s pay for every year of service or one month pay, whichever is higher. Just like an insurance premium, Outsourced applies a Redundancy Pay Provision as part of the Monthly Staff Salary in order to cover redundancy events. In case of redundancy your staff will be paid this separation pay in full. In the event the provision is not sufficient to cover the full value of redundancy the Security Deposit will be used to cover the remaining pay to the staff.
