Computation of Night Shift Differential Pay

If covered employees perform work on a night shift designated by law, they are entitled to a night shift differential pay of at least 20% their hourly rate for those in the Government service and 10% for those in the private sector.

1. Computation

These are the steps on how to compute for the night shift differential pay.

The following are the assumptions:

1) The employee’s daily rate is Php800.00.

2) The employee works for 8 hours, including 2 hours covered by night shift pay.

a. Private Sector

STEP 1: Divide the daily rate with eight hours – to get the hourly rate.Formula:daily rate ÷ 8 hours = hourly rateSample computation:Php800.00 ÷ 8 hours = Php100.00/hour

STEP 2: Multiple the hourly rate by the applicable rate – to get the night shift hourly rate.For the private sector, it is 10% of the hourly rate or a total of 110%.⦁ Formula:hourly rate x 110% = night shift hourly rate⦁ Sample computation:Php100.000/hour x 110% = Php110.00/hour

STEP 3: Multiply the night shift hourly rate by the hours worked – to get the night shift pay.⦁ Formula:night shift hourly rate x 2 hours of work = pay with night shift differential⦁ Sample computation:Php110.00/hour x 2 hours = Php220.00

STEP 4: Add night shift pay to pay for ordinary hours rendered – to get to the day’s wage.⦁ Formula:pay with night shift differential + pay for ordinary hours = day’s wage⦁ Sample computation:Php220.00 + Php600.00 = Php820.00

b. Government service

STEP 1: Divide the daily ...
