Jersey May 9 Public Holiday Compensated

The Jersey States Employment Board has announced that the States of Jersey had overwhelmingly voted to award an extra non-working day of leave to the Jersey public sector, to compensate them for the Liberation Day non-working public holiday of Jersey falling on a Saturday, last year.

Last year, many attempts were made to have the states of Jersey declare Monday, May 11, 2015, as a one off day in lieu non-working public holiday in Jersey, to compensate the fact that the 2015 Liberation Day non-working public holiday of Jersey would fall on a Saturday (01-Oct-2013).

The Jersey Council of Ministers initially stated that it would not ask the States of Jersey for an additional non-working public holiday in Jersey on May 11, 2015, to compensate the fact that the 70th anniversary of the end of Jersey's WW2 occupation would fall on a Saturday (25-Jan-2015).

A later proposition by Deputy S.Y. Mézec of St. Helier for an additional non-working public holiday in Jersey on Friday, May 8, 2015, the second such proposal to compensate the fact that the 70th anniversary of the end of Jersey's WW2 occupation would fall on a Saturday in 2015, was also ruled-out (11-Mar-2015).

Note that the 2015 decision was coherent as the last time when the Jersey annual non-working public holiday for Liberation Day fell on a Saturday, in 2010, a similar call to declare Monday, May 11, 2010, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Jersey, was defeated, despite multiple and last-minute efforts (20-Dec-2009, 03-Feb-2010, 15-Feb-2010, 27-Feb-2010 and 25-Mar-2010).
