Ministry spokesperson, Geovanny Diaz, said that inspectors have already begun visiting some of the employers reported.

The aguinaldo is payable to all salaried employees.

The aguinaldo is calculated, for simplicity sake, equal to average of one months salary paid between December 1 of the previous year to November 30 of the current (or a fraction thereof, if employment was less than the full year). Employers have until December 20 to pay, or face sanctions.
