The Ministry of Labour of the Dominican Republic has issued an official communiqué announcing that, as per the current public holidays legislation, Thursday, June 7, 2012, will be an official non-working public holiday in the Dominican Republic on account of the upcoming feast of Corpus Christi.
The aforementioned announcement is in line with last fall's official listing of public holidays in the Dominican Republic for the year 2012 (2011-11-01), and follows the 1997 "Ley No. 139-97 mediante la cual los días feriados del calendario que coincidan con los días martes y miércoles, jueves o viernes" (1997-06-19) which stipulates that, although some public holidays are moved to another weekday depending on the weekday on which they occur, some others are not as is the case for religious holidays.
