Bill on 10-day paid incentive leave will soon become a law
by Pamela Mariz Geminiano / PNA

The bill raising the paid incentive leaves for company employees from five to 10 days will soon become a law, according to Baguio Rep. Mark Go.

“The bill will now be forwarded to the Senate for its consideration and approval, and I am hopeful that our Senate counterparts will pass it before the year ends,” Go said.

The House of Representatives unanimously approved on Wednesday House Bill 6770, authored by Go.

Go said the bill got the support of all 203 House members present during the plenary voting.

This would boost workers’ morale, wellness, and productivity, he said.

The bill provides that every employee who has rendered at least one year of service shall be entitled to a yearly service incentive leave of 10 days. At present, workers are entitled to only five days of incentive leave under the Labor Code of the Philippines.

With the additional five-day service incentive leave, employees will have more quality time to spend with their families and will be more productive because of higher morale and satisfaction, Go said.

Under the bill, an employee can convert his or her unused service incentive leaves to cash at the end of the year.

Go said all employees who have rendered at least one year of service in a company would be entitled to a yearly incentive leave of 10 days.

“Once this is enacted into a law, there will be a mandatory 10-day service incentive leave,” he said. “Employees can either use this when getting sick and there are no stipulated sick leaves with pay benefits in a company. This will prevent a deduction on the part of the employee who gets sick.”
