Moldovan Extended January Public Holiday Ruled-Out
Posted: Thursday, December 23, 2010 Updated: Wednesday, August 10, 2011
An adviser to the Moldovan Prime Minister, Igor Volnitchi, has announced that no additional non-working public sector holiday would be given to public sector employees to compensate the fact that one of the upcoming Christmas public holidays falls on a weekend.
As per the aforementioned statement, only January 7 will be a public holiday and the additional public holiday will occur on a weekend (Zi libera va fi doar pe 7 ianuarie. Celelalte sarbatori vor fi în zile de odihna si nu vor fi acordate zile libere.).
Alkthough the declaration of one-off bridge public holidays is common in Moldova (2010-08-10, 2008-12-10, 2007-12-06, and 2005-02-23), the declaration of a day in lieu public holiday to compensate a public holiday that falls on a weekend is not.
