Public Holidays Falling on Weekends

By virtue of Act IV of 2021, the National Holidays and Other Public Holidays Act (Chapter 252) has been amended in February 2021.

Prior to the said amendments, when a National Holiday or a Public Holiday falls on a Saturday or on a Sunday, this was not deemed to be a public holiday for the purposes of entitling a person to an additional day of vacation leave. This being said however, with effect from 1st January 2021 when a national or a public holiday falls on a Saturday or on a Sunday, it will be deemed to be a public holiday for the purposes of entitling a person to a day of vacation leave in addition to the ordinary leave entitlement for that particular year.

Schedule 1 of Chapter 252 outlines the dates which qualify as National/Public Holidays in accordance with such legislation.
