Russian 2017 Public Holidays Confirmed

At the last meeting of the Russian tripartite commission on the regulation of social and labor relations, representatives of the government, employers' associations, and trade unions, reviewed and approved the last month's draft decision by the Russian government to postpone the days off in 2017, in the context of the announcement of the list of official non-working public holidays in Russia in the calendar year 2017.

Today's announcement follows last month's release by the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation of its annual "Government Resolution On The Transfer Of Public Holidays in 2017", which proposed a draft list of official public holidays and bridge holidays in Russia for the upcoming calendar year 2017.

In that, as yet unnumbered and undated decree, "Government Resolution On The Transfer Of Public Holidays in 2017", and as was done in previous years (26-Sep-2015, 19-Jun-2015, 30-Aug-2014, 23-May-2014, 03-Jun-2013, 17-Oct-2012, 29-Sep-2012, 21-Jul-2011, 24-Aug-2010, 10-Nov-2009, 28-Nov-2008, 11-Aug-2007, 06-Jan-2007, 11-Nov-2006, and 28-Dec-2005), whenever a fixed-date annual public holiday falls on a Tuesday or Thursday, the preceding Monday or Friday is usually declared a one-off bridge public holiday, to be compensated by declaring a nearby Saturday to be a regular working day.

In addition, for the second year in a row, some of the day in lieu public holidays that would have been mandated by the amendments to Article 112 of Russia's Labour Code (30-Dec-2004), have been moved to dates that would in previous years have been bridge public holidays to be compensated by a working Saturday, a practice which has not been very productive.
