How do I calculate my FDW's pay in-lieu of a weekly rest day?

If you and your foreign domestic worker (FDW) mutually agree to opt for compensation in-lieu, the compensation rate must at least be the FDW's daily wage for each rest day. It should be paid on top of her monthly salary. The FDW's daily wage is calculated by dividing her monthly salary by 26 working days.
