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).
