The Ministry of Health, Labor and Social Protection of the government of Moldova has announced a proposal to amend Article 111 of the Labor Code of the Republic of Moldova, whereby December 31 to January 2 would become new annual non-working public holidays in Moldova, to be compensated by the cancellation of 2 of Moldova's current annual public holidays.
As per the aforementioned proposal by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Social Protection of the government of Moldova, "Art. 111 par. (2) shall have the following content: a) December 31 - January 2 - New Year's holiday days; point (c) is repealed (March 8 - International Women's Day); point (f) is repealed (May 1 - International Labor Day)".
If the above changes were voted and promulgated before the end of this month (the Ministry is saying that it will be considered before December 31) then it would amend the list of 2017 annual non-working public holidays in Moldova, announced a year ago (2016-10-17) as well as the list of 2018 annual non-working public holidays in Moldova, announced last month (2017-11-29).
