Azerbaijan's Cabinet of Ministers has made its annual year-end public holidays announcement, whereby the period of Wednesday, December 31, 2014, to Sunday, January 4, 2015, inclusively, has been declared as official non-working public holidays in Azerbaijan on account of the upcoming annual "Solidarity Day of World Azerbaijanis" and "Western New Year" public holidays.
The aforementioned declaration of the period of Wednesday, December 31, 2014, to Sunday, January 5, 2015, inclusively, as non-working public holidays in Azerbaijan, is in line with the official list of 2014 non-working public holidays in Azerbaijan, which was published late last year (2013-12-17) which itself was based on the current labor law of Azerbaijan as it relates to the list of official non-working public holidays (2005-12-30).
Last year (2013-12-11), Azerbaijan's Cabinet of Ministers had extended its year-end public holidays from Tuesday, December 31, 2013, to Monday, January 6, 2014, inclusively, with the additional non-working public holidays thus announced for Friday, January 3, and Monday, January 6, 2014, being compensated by Saturday and Sunday, December 28 and 29, 2013, having been declared as regular working days in Azerbaijan.
