Protektado pa rin ng Labor Code ang isang regular employee, kahit nasa work from home.
Ayon sa DOLE Labor Advisory No. 17-2020, in relation to DOLE Department Order No. 202-19, ang work from home or telecommuting “terms and conditions shall not be less than the minimum labor standards set by law, and shall include compensable work hours, minimum number of work hours, overtime, rest days, entitlement to leave benefits, social welfare benefits, and security of tenure.”
Ibig sabihin, may karapatan pa rin ayo sa overtime pay ayon sa Labor Code:
“Article 87. Overtime Work.— Work may be performed beyond eight (8) hours a day provided that the employee is paid for the overtime work, an additional compensation equivalent to his regular wage plus at least twenty-five percent (25%) thereof. Work performed beyond eight hours on a holiday or rest day shall be paid an additional compensation equivalent to the rate of the first eight hours on a holiday or rest day plus at least thirty percent (30%) thereof.”
Bukod dito, may karapatan rin kayo sa angkop na rest periods at meal periods:
“Article 84. Hours Worked.— Hours worked shall include (a) all time during which an employee is required to be on duty or to be at a prescribed workplace; and (b) all time during which an employee is suffered or permitted to work.
Rest periods of short duration during working hours shall be counted as hours worked.
Article 85. Meal Periods.— Subject to such regulations as the Secretary of Labor may prescribe, it shall be the duty of every employer to give his employees not less than sixty (60) minutes time-off for their regular meals.”
