The dispositions of the 1959 Labour Code were amended by the 1987 Ley de Procedimiento Administrativo, which in turn was amended in 1998 by Decree 288-98 which cancelled the public holidays of April 14, September 17, October 3 and 12, to focus the nation's vital forces on repairing the damages done by hurricane Mitch. The amendment was later repealed in 2001 by Decree 199-2001 which re-instated these 4 public holidays.
• Weekend Public Holidays: Article 339 of the Honduran Labour Code specifies that public holidays that fall on a week-end remain on that date (ie. no day in lieu is given).
• Mid-Week Public Holidays: the Honduran government has a habit of officially moving some public holidays to the following Monday, but historical records show that which public holidays get moved to the following Monday is somewhat arbitrary, changes every year, and is usually only announced in the 10-15 days prior to the holiday. We would therefore recommend that you avoid trying to do business on any Monday that follows one of the above public holidays dates.
• Semana Santa (week before Easter): Under President Ricardo Maduro (2002-2006) it bacame habitual for civil servants to get the first 3 days of Easter week off, to enable them to have 9 consecutive days off. This has been continued by the following government, with compensation for these 3 extra days off coming in the form of either 3 working Saturdays (2007), or the canceletion of 3 public holidays for civil servants (2008).
