13th month pay shall mean one twelfth (1/12) of the basic salary of an employee within a calendar year. (See Guide on Employee Compensation and Benefits Vol. 2, 2nd Edition, by Atty. Elvin B. Villanueva citing Section 2, Rules and Regulations Implementing Presidential Decree No. 851).
This shall apply only to rank-and-file employees. A rank-and-file employee must have worked for at least one (1) month to enjoy the 13th-month pay benefit. As clearly stated by law, except as provided in Section 3 of the rules, all employees of covered employers shall be entitled to 13th-month pay benefit regardless of their position, designation or employment status, and irrespective of the method by which their wages are paid, provided that they have worked for at least one month during the calendar year.
The thirteenth-month pay shall not be less than one-twelfth (1/12) of the total basic salary earned by an employee in a calendar year.
