Dominican Republic Amends Public Holidays Legislation
 
(Posted on Tuesday, December 2, 2014)

Following last spring's passage by the Dominican Republic Senate of a bill amending the current law on the public holidays of the Dominican Republic, the Dominican Republic National Assembly has voted the emergency, and unanimous, passage of the iniciativa No.04467-2010-2016-CD ("Proyecto de ley mediante el cual se modifican los artículos 2 y 4 de la Ley No.139-97, del 19 de junio del 1997").

Last spring (02-May-2014) the Dominican Republic Senate has approved a bill, similar to an earlier one passed by the Lower House of Parliament of the Dominican Republic, which removed the January 6 and 26 annual non-working public holidays from the scope of the law 139-97 which regulates non-working public holidays in the Dominican Republic.

Note that, as per the recent (31-Oct-2014) announcement by the Ministry of Labour of the Dominican Republic, of the annual official finalized listing of non-working public holidays in the Dominican Republic for the upcoming calendar year 2015, the 2015 January 6 public holiday had been moved to January 5. It remains to be seen if the change voted today will cause a revision of the 2015 non-working public holidays in the Dominican Republic.
