Dominican Republic Senate Amends Public Holidays
 
(Posted on Friday, May 2, 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.

Earlier this year (11-Jan-2014 and 04-Jan-2014), for the first time, the January 6 public holiday ("Día de los Santos Reyes") and January 26 public holiday ("día del natalicio de Juan Pablo Duarte, Padre de la Patria"), were observed on their traditional dates of January 6 and 26, respectively.

The aforementioned announcements were in line with last fall's official listing of public holidays in the Dominican Republic for the year 2014 (24-Oct-2013), and follows the 1997 "Ley No. 139-97 mediante la cual los días feriados del calendario que coincidan con los días martes y miércoles, jueves o viernes" (19-Jun-1997), as amended last summer (27-Jul-2013) by a bill which removes 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.
