Costa Rica Amends List of Movable Public Holidays
 
(Posted on Friday, October 5, 2007)

Costa Rica's deputies have passed Law 8604 of 17 September 2007 which amends article 148, paragraph two of the Labor Code, Law 2 of 26 August 1943 and its amendments.

The law establishes that the holidays of 11 April, 25 July and 12 October falling on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday will be worked normally, but that their benefit must be transferred to the next Monday.

This amendment, in effect, removes August 15 from the list of 4 public holidays that are moved to the following Monday, when they fall on a mid-week weekday (17-Mar-2005). A last minute attempt to do so last year, had failed (10-Aug-2007).
