The Moldavian Cabinet has once again approved a decree on the declaration of Friday, June 1st, 2018, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, on account of International Children's Day.

Two years ago year (2016-05-30 and 2016-05-27), Moldova's Parliament had passed a bill to make June 1st, International Children's Day, a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova, but so late that, to take effect in 2016, it would have needed to be transcribed into the Moldovan Labour Code in less than a week. As a consequence, the declaration of Wednesday, June 1st, 2016, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, was be compensated by having Saturday, June 25, 2016, declared as a regular working day.

Last year, at the same time (2017-05-24), the bill to make June 1st, International Children's Day, a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova, had still not been transcribed into the Moldovan Labour Code, and as a consequence, the declaration of Thursday, June 1st, 2017, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, was compensated by having Saturday, June 24, 2017, declared as a regular working day.

This year, Saturday, June 23, 2018, has been declared as a regular working day in Moldova to compensate the declaration of Friday, June 1st, 2018, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, on account of International Children's Day.

The declaration of Friday, June 1st, 2018, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, thus amends the list of the annual non-working 2018 public holidays in in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2018", released last fall by the government of Moldova (2017-11-29).
