This year, March 30 falls in the Catholic observance known as the Black Sabbath (Black Saturday). This has been declared as early as last year when President Aquino signed Proclamation No. 459 containing the schedule of holidays for the entire year 2013.

For those who will be required to report on that day, the employer shall provide additional compensation based on the established rules of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).
