Peru 2011 Public Holidays Announced

The government of Peru has issued an executive order (Decreto Supremo No. 019-2011-PCM) declaring 5 additional public sector holidays for the calendar year 2011.

The 2011 list of additional public sector holidays contains 3 Mondays (May 2, August 29, and October 31) and 2 Fridays (December 23 and December 30).

The aforementioned decree, issued by the Presidencia del Consejo de Ministros, considers these extra days to be workable days (estos días se considerarán hábiles) to be recuperated, as was done in past years (2010-02-17, 2008-12-15, 2008-02-08 and 2006-09-15).

This year, however, the past years' vague stipulation that these additional public sector holidays were to be recuperated "during the course of the year", has been replaced by the stipulation that each of these 5 additional public sector holidays is to be recuperated by working longer hours in the week that follows each of these public sector holidays ("las horas dejadas de trabajar como consecuencia de este dispositivo serán compensadas por los trabajadores en la semana posterior a la del día declarado no laborable").

Last year's list of additional public sector holidays contained only 4 additional public sector holidays (2010-02-17).
