The government of Latvia has released the annual official list of official non-working national public holidays in Latvia, and bridge non-working public holidays in Latvia, for the upcoming calendar year 2016.
In the aforementioned list of non-working national public holidays and bridge non-working public holidays in Latvia for the calendar year 2016, the government of Latvia, once again (2011-01-05), halts the practice of many past years (2014-11-15, 2013-10-25, 2013-01-16, 2012-01-04, 2010-01-08, 2009-05-21 and 2007-04-13), of declaring additional, one-off, bridge public holidays that were compensated by the same number of Saturdays being declared as regular working days.
It will be interesting to see whether, or not, the practice of declaring additional, one-off, bridge public holidays, compensated by the same number of Saturday working days, will return in 2017, as it did in 2012 (2012-01-04) after a year hiatus.
