Ukraine 2018 Public Holidays Draft Amended

Posted on Friday, December 8, 2017


Ukraine's Ministry of Social Policy issued a revised draft resolution for the Cabinet of Ministers of the Ukraine specifying the annual official list of 2018 non-working public holidays in the Ukraine, which amends its previous decision to postpone working days in 2018, in order to create favorable conditions for the rational use of working time.

Recall that, last month (2017-11-21), Ukraine's Ministry of Social Policy had prepared a draft resolution for the Cabinet of Ministers of the Ukraine specifying the annual official list of 2018 non-working public holidays in the Ukraine, which included a decision to postpone some working days to a nearby Saturday in 2018, in order to create favorable conditions for the rational use of working time, as was done in the past (2016-11-15, 2016-08-17, 2015-11-12, 2014-11-17, 2014-11-13, 2013-11-21, 2012-05-30, 2012-04-23, 2012-03-01, 2011-06-20, 2011-02-24, 2010-08-13, 2008-12-10, 2007-11-29, and 2005-12-23), when a series of additional one-off bridge public holidays were compensated by corresponding working Saturdays.

That draft announcement of the official list of 2018 non-working public holidays in the Ukraine, however, did not include the new December 25 public holiday in the Ukraine bill 5496, voted and sent to the Ukrainian President for ratification (2017-11-16 and 2017-03-28) the week before, and since then signed by Ukrainian President, Petro Poroshenko (2017-11-29), thus changing the list of official annual non-working public holidays in the Ukraine (Article 73 of the Labour Code of the Ukraine).
