Background Information

Governing Law: Official public holidays in New Caledonia are the same as those in France and are regulated by Article L222-1 du Code du travail (Labour Code), to which is added New Caledonia Day and, since 2008, New Caledonia Day.  Weekend Public Holidays: Public holidays that occur on a weekend remain on that date (ie. they are not moved to another date, such as the following Monday, for example).  Whit Monday was no longer recognized as one of the public holidays as of 2005, to help fund health care for elderly persons following the high number of elderly deaths during the heat wave of the summer of 2003. However, it returned to the list of French public holidays starting in 2008.  Each Industry has some interplay with these holidays, thus an employee might have to work on some of them but get other days off in lieu .  New Caledonia International Codes NC and NCL (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .nc (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of New Caledonia information and news: Bank of France (New Caledonia central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (New Caledonia maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in New Caledonia), and Wikipedia (includes New Caledonia commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).
