Dominican Republic Public Holiday August 16

Over this past weekend, the Ministry of Labour of the Dominican Republic once again issued a communiqué announcing that, as per the current public holidays legislation, Tuesday, August 16, 2016, would be the date of the official annual non-working public holiday in the Dominican Republic on account of the upcoming Día de la Restauración non-working public holiday.

The aforementioned announcement that Tuesday, August 16, 2016, would be the date of the official annual non-working public holiday in the Dominican Republic, on account of the upcoming Día de la Restauración non-working public holiday, is in line with last fall's official listing of public holidays in the Dominican Republic for the year 2016 (31-Oct-2015), and the current public holidays legislation of the Dominican Republic (19-Jun-1997), namely law 139-97.

A few years ago (21-Feb-2008), the Dominican Republic's Supreme Court had declared as unconstitutional, articles 1-2-4 of law 139-97 (19-Jun-1997), which moved the August 16 Restoration Day public holiday to the following Monday, whenever it falls on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. The change in calculation rule took place immediately, but as August 16 fell on a Saturday/Sunday/Monday in 2008/2009/2010, the ruling began to have a concrete effect, for the first time three years later (09-Aug-2013, 14-Jun-2012 and 14-Aug-2011).
