The Presidency of Haiti has gazetted a law amending the official list of annual non-working public holidays in Haiti.

As per the aforementioned "Décret du 24 février 1984 et Loi du jeudi 5 juin 2003 actualisant le Code du travail du 12 septembre 1961", some of the Duvalier era public holidays, such as the "jour de la souveraineté et de la reconnaissance nationale" (May 22), "jour de la présidence à vie" (June 22), and "Anniversaire de la découverte d'Haïti" (December 5) have now been removed from the official list of annual non-working public holidays in Haiti.

The law still divides public holidays into 2 categories: non-working holidays (jours fériés chômés) and working holidays (jours fériés non chômés) with a proviso that the President can on an ad hoc basis change some of the working holidays into non-working holidays, as has been done on some occasions in the past (31-Oct-2001).
