Azerbaijani 2018 Public Holidays Completed

Source: Azerbaijani Cabinet of Ministers (Baku)
Posted on Thursday, December 21, 2017


The Labor and Social Protection Ministry of Azerbaijan has approved the industry calendar and norms of working time in 2018, which finalizes the previously partially-released list of non-working public holidays in Azerbaijan, including Muslim Azeri public holidays, and day in lieu public holidays due to some of Azerbaijan's 2018 annual non-working public holidays falling on a weekend or on the same date as another of Azerbaijan's public holidays.

Today's announcement completes that made, earlier this month (2017-12-08), when Azerbaijan's Cabinet of Ministers announced the full list of official annual non-working public holidays in Azerbaijan for the upcoming calendar year 2018, including the annual Novruz, Ramadan and Qurban non-working public holidays of Azerbaijan, following an earlier announcement of the year-end public holidays in Azerbaijan (2017-11-21), but which did not yet cover the full calendar year 2018 and does specify day in lieu public holidays, as was the case for the past few years (2016-12-01, 2015-12-25 and 2014-11-25).

In years before (2013-12-17, 2012-12-18, 2011-12-09, 2010-12-03, 2009-11-27 and 2008-12-14), the annual Novruz, Ramadan and Qurban non-working public holidays of Azerbaijan were usually declared in a later announcement (2013-10-07, 2013-08-03, 2013-02-14, 2012-08-07, 2012-02-21, 2011-06-02, 2011-05-03, 2011-02-23, 2010-02-16 and 2009-10-29), based on the current labour law of Azerbaijan as it relates to the list of official non-working public holidays (2005-12-30).
