The government of Kazakhstan has announced that Monday, March 10, 2014, had been declared a day in lieu non-working public holiday in Kazakhstan to compensate the annual Women's Day public holiday of Kazakhstan falling on a weekend in 2014.
In addition, the government of Kazakhstan also announced that the annual Novruz public holidays would be extended to run from March 21 to March 25, 2014.
These announcements follow from the 2001 amended version of Kazakhstan's Labour Code and the Law on Holidays in the Republic of Kazakhstan (2001-12-14) which states that "the days of the national and state holidays are non-working days" and that "in case of coincidence of a day off and a holiday, a day off will be the next day following the holiday".
