Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III announced that the government will move forward with handing out subsidies or loans to “distressed” employers to enable them to comply with the labor standard.

Bello said that DOLE acknowledges that many businesses, especially micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), will be unable to comply with the 13th Month Pay law.

Thus, the Labor Department requested the Department of Finance (DOF) for a subsidy.

“We will not postpone, defer, and we will not give any exemption to the payment of 13th month pay,” Bello said during the Laging Handa public briefing.

“The law says, ‘pay the workers their 13th month pay on or before December 24,’ ‘yan po ang ipapatupad ng Department of Labor,” he said.
