WORKERS PAID BY RESULT Sally Solidum-Protacio I.R
Workers Paid by Results: Workers paid by result may be classified into two (2) categories, namely: a). Piece-rate workers – those who are paid per piece of work. Their work output is quantifiable based on the number of unit produced. b). Task-based workers, “pakiao”, or “takay” – those who are paid based on result of work or bulk work that is difficult to quantify.
Workers Paid by Results: Workers paid by result are those paid per unit output or on task basis. The nature of their work is such that they are paid not on the basis of the time spent at work or the nature of their work is so characterized that actual hours of work cannot be determined with reasonable certainty.
Standard Rates for Workers Paid by Results The wage rates of workers who are paid by results shall continue to be established in accordance with Article 101 of the Labor Code, as amended and its implementing regulations, i.e., through: 1. Time and motion studies; 2. An individual/collective bargaining agreement between the employer and its workers as approved by the Secretary. 3. Consultation with representatives of employers and workers as organizations in tripartite conference called by Secretary.
Those whose rates conform to the standards under Labor Code (compensated based on rates prescribed under Section 8, Rule VII, Book III of the Implementing Rules of the Labor Code) or such rates as may be fixed by the Secretary of Labor and Employment, are presumed to be unsupervised by the employer. They are paid a standard rate per piece of work produced without regard to the time it takes to produce each piece; in which case, said workers are not entitled to overtime pay for work in excess of eight hours a day.
WHEN CAN WORKERS PAID BY RESULT BE COVERED BY THE CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT UNDER BOOK III OF THE LABOR CODE? When they are working under the control and supervision of the employer (“time-work basis”). When the output rates of piece-rate workers are NOT in accordance with the procedures and standard rates prescribed under the Labor Code or fixed by the Secretary of Labor (“supervised”).
