Moldova's Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Protection, Nighina Azizov, has announced that Monday, March 7, 2016, had been declared a one-off bridge public sector holiday in Moldova to link the weekend to the annual March 8 International Women's Day public holiday of Moldova.
The declaration of Monday, March 7, 2016, as a one-off bridge non-working public sector holiday in Moldova, on account of the 2016 International Women's Day annual non-working public holiday of Moldova, was contained in the list of the annual additional non-working public holidays in 2016 in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2016" and the later "Cu privire la transferul zilei de odihna în anul 2016"), released last fall (26-Oct-2015) by the government of Moldova, and which was then completed (28-Dec-2015 and 16-Dec-2015).
As usual (18-Feb-2011, 10-Aug-2010, 04-Dec-2009 and 10-Dec-2008), the aforementioned decision by the Moldovan Cabinet of Ministers to declare Monday, March 7, 2016, a one-off non-working public holiday will be compensated by Saturday, March 12, 2016, being declared a regular working day in Moldova.
Prior to the announcement of 2015 public holidays in Moldova (05-Jul-2014), the initial list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the coming years did not include any bridge public holidays, which were usually announced later, on a case-by-case basis (07-Dec-2013, 08-Feb-2013, 11-Apr-2012, 22-Feb-2012, 18-Feb-2011, 10-Aug-2010, 04-Dec-2009 and 10-Dec-2008).
