Background Information

Governing Law: The official public holidays in Guam are regulated by articles 1000, 1011, and 1025 of the Guam Labor Code of 2000.  GovGuam Holidays: Basing itself on Public Law 27-153, the government of Guam, up to and including 2013, continues to follow the practice of giving civil servants a day in lieu (called GovGuam Holiday) for any public holiday that occurs on a weekend. This despite the passage of laws in 2002 and 2004, which specifically were meant to stop this practice.  Presidents' Day is listed in many sources as a public holiday in Guam, but in fact it is not even a GovGuam holiday, let alone a general public holiday.  The private sector and banks do not follow the practice of giving a day in lieu for public holiday that fall on a weekend. It used to be the case, according to former Government Code 201, but this was repealed by P.L. 26- 157:7 as a cost-cutting measure.  Elections held in November every two or four years are subject to being declared a public holiday by the Governor of Guam.  Bank Holidays: as banks in Guam are almost all US banks, they usually close on the dates of most US public holidays, such as Presidents' Day and Columbus Day. Some, such as the ANZ bank, will also close on Good Friday.  Guam International Codes GU and GUM (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .gu (ICANN national top-level internet domain).
