Malta Votes Public Holidays Amendment
 
(Posted on Saturday, January 15, 2005)

Source: Malta Ministry for Justice and Home Affairs (Valletta)

The official text of the amendments to the National Holidays and Other Public Holidays Act (Chapter 252 of the Laws of Malta) has been voted.

The thrust of the amendment, introduced late last year (03-Dec-2004), is to repeal the so-called day-in-lieu provision, whereby fixed-date public holidays that fall on a weekend give rise to an additional public holiday (usually on the next Monday).

This is stated in Article 6b) which reads: "with effect from 1st January, 2005 when a National Holiday or a Public Holiday listed in the Schedule falls on a Saturday or on a Sunday, it shall not be deemed to be a public holiday for the purposes of entitling any person to an additional day of vacation leave".
