The Finnish Parliament has approved changes to the Finnish Annual Holiday Act as part of the current austerity reforms, and these amendments will come into effect on April 1st, 2016.



Late last summer (09-Sep-2015), Finland's Finance Minister, Alexander Stubb, had announced a series of austerity measures which, among other measures, would have canceled 2 of Finland's annual non-working public holidays. The 2 annual non-working public holidays that had been considered for the ax were Epiphany (January 6) and Ascension Day (39 days after Easter Sunday).
