Cook Islands Could Cancel Sundays As Public Holidays

The Parliament of the Cook Islands is currently reviewing proposed changes to the Cook Islands labour law.

Under the proposed law Sunday would no longer be a public holiday. As per Ministry secretary, Bredina Drollet, the rationale is that the tourism industry is large, and many people work on a Sunday anyways.

Note that, as per the Public Holidays Act 1999 (15-Dec-1999), Sundays are non-working public holidays and are treated specifically in that "Where a Public Holiday (other than a Sundayand Anzac day) falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the holiday shall be observed on the following Monday.".
