Poland Restores Epiphany Public Holiday

The Polish Parliament has approved a draft amendment to the Labour Law and Bill on Holidays, which finally re-establishes Epiphany as an official non-working public holiday.

The change will take effect beginning in 2011, but in compensation, the amendment withdraws the legal obligation to give a day off in lieu of a public holiday which falls on a Saturday.

Epiphany was the only religious public holiday that had not been restored since Poland regained its independence in 1991, and had been the source of many petitions to have the public holiday restored (19-Apr-2009, 27-Jun-2008, 22-Sep-2008, and 17-Oct-2008).
