Bolivia's Ministry of Labour has confirmed that the upcoming public holidays of September 14 and November 2, 2014, which fall on a Sunday, would be observed on the following Monday, as per the "Decreto Supremo 22352, del 27 de octubre de 1989".

As per the aforementioned decree, "en caso de que un feriado caiga en un día no laborable debe trasladarse al día hábil más inmediato".

The same is not true of non-working public holidays which fall on a Saturday. Last year (23-Oct-2013), Bolivia's Minister of Labour, Juan López, had issued a statement ("El feriado se mantiene como tal el día sábado 2 de noviembre, no hay posibilidad de que se pueda recorrer al día lunes") ruling-out the declaration of Monday, November 4, 2013, as an additional non-working public holiday in Bolivia, to compensate the fact that the annual, November 2 public holiday falls on a Satuday in 2013. Later (30-Oct-2013), though, Bolivia's Ministry of Labour relented somewhat and announced that Friday, November 1, 2013, would be observed as a continuous schedule working day (horario continuo) meaning that the upcoming public sector holidays for the November 2 annual public holiday would begin at 4pm on Friday, November 1, 2013.
