Dominican Republic Confirms August 16 Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Wednesday, August 9, 2017)

The Ministry of Labour of the Dominican Republic has once again issued a communiqué announcing that, as per the current public holidays legislation, Wednesday, August 16, 2017, 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 of the Dominican Republic.

The aforementioned announcement that Wednesday, August 16, 2017, 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 of the Dominican Republic, is in line with last autumn's official listing of public holidays in the Dominican Republic for the year 2017 (06-Nov-2016), and the current public holidays legislation of the Dominican Republic (19-Jun-1997), namely law 139-97.

A decade ago (21-Feb-2008), the Dominican Republic's Supreme Court declared as unconstitutional, articles 1-2-4 of law 139-97 (19-Jun-1997), which moved the August 16 Restoration Day public holiday of the Dominican Republic 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 only began to have a concrete effect three years later (09-Aug-2013, 14-Jun-2012 and 14-Aug-2011), and official reminders from the Ministry of Labour of the Dominican Republic are a yearly staple of news in the Dominican Republic (15-Aug-2016, 14-Aug-2014, 09-Aug-2013, 14-Jun-2012, 14-Aug-2011).
