Bolivia Decrees Extended Public Holidays

Bolivia's government has issued a decree, signed by President Evo Morales, which regulates the declaration of one-off day in lieu non-working public holidays in Bolivia, whenever a fixed-date annual non-working public holiday falls on a Sunday ("regula el calendario y traslado de feriados nacionales del paνs cuando caen en domingo").

Recall that, last month (14-Apr-2016), Bolivia's Minister of Labour had indicated that the Government of Bolivia was planning to declare of Monday, May 2, 2016, as a non-working public holiday in Bolivia, due to the upcoming annual, May 1st, non-working public holiday of Bolivia falling on a Sunday in 2016, and this was in fact confirmed, later that same month (28-Apr-2016).

The decree includes the Easter weekend (23-Mar-2016) in its list of long weekends, and excludes the Carnival public holidays, as well as Corpus Christi and All Saints' Day, from the scope of the decree.

The annual, May 1st, non-working public holiday of Bolivia has often been the source of an additional day in lieu public holiday in Bolivia when it fell on a Sunday (28-Apr-2016 and 15-Apr-2011), and also in some cases Saturday (29-Apr-2004), though not in recent years (27-Apr-2010), while some bridge holidays were declared on (28-Apr-2012) and off (13-Apr-2014 and 09-Apr-2014).
