Nicaragua's Ministry of Labour (MITRAB), through its minister, Alba Luz Briones, has announced that Monday, September 16, 2013, would be a non-working public holiday in Nicaragua to compensate the annual Independence Day public holiday falling on a Sunday.
Last-minute tinkering of Nicaraguan public holidays usually takes the form of declaring bridge holidays (24-May-2013, 28-May-2012, 25-Apr-2012 and 28-May-2011), rather than day in lieu public holidays.
Article 68 of the Nicaraguan Labour Code does state that holidays that fall on Sundays are either financially compensated, or an alternative date is given. But giving the alternate date on the following Monday is not a regular practice; these extra days tend to be added to paid vacations, or to complete the afternoon-only public holidays of May 30 (24-May-2013) and November 2 (31-Oct-2012).
