Argentina Public Holidays Legislation Changes Gazetted
 
(Posted on Monday, January 23, 2017)

Source: Boletín Oficial de la República Argentina (Buenos Aires)

The Decreto de Necesidad y Urgencia (Decreto 52/2017), announced last week by Argentine President, Mauricio Macri, to set forth his proposed revisions to the rules governing non-working public holidays in Argentina, has been published in the Boletín Oficial de la República Argentina to take effect tomorrow, Tuesday, January 24, 2017.

Contrary to his pronouncements during the last presidential campaign, Argentine President, Mauricio Macri, once in power, did not reverse any of the annual public holidays or one-off non-working public holidays ("feriados con fines turísticos") previously-declared and later reconfirmed in the last days of the administration of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner for the calendar year 2016 (30-Oct-2015and 12-Nov-2013).

But, at the end of last October (30-Oct-2016), President Macri, finally announced that he would put a stop to the process of declaring one-off non-working public holidays in Argentina ("feriados con fines turísticos") effective with the calendar year 2017, sending to Congress a legislative proposal to end the process of declaring one-off non-working public holidays in Argentina (02-Dec-2016).

But, faced with legislative delays (19-Jan-2017), President Macri decided to abandon the legislative route and use a Decreto de Necesidad y Urgencia (DNU), as was done by his predecessor, President Kirchner, on two similar occasions (03-Nov-2010 and 04-May-2010).

The "feriados con fines turísticos" were established in the 2010 decree, published in the "Decreto 1585/2010, Establécense días feriados con fines turísticos" (Boletín Oficial, Número 32.020, Año CXVIII), implementing a major public holidays revision (03-Nov-2010) and instituting the principle of 2 annual bridge public holidays ("en los casos en que los feriados nacionales coincidan con los días martes o jueves, a fijar 2 feriados por año que deberán coincidir con los días lunes o viernes inmediatos respectivos") to be announced at least 50 days before the beginning of the year in question ("debiendo establecer los mismos por períodos trianuales con una antelación de 50 días a la finalización del año calendario").
