Romanian Public Holidays December 27 and January 3

The Romanian Government of Ludovic Orban has announced that both upcoming Fridays, December 27, 2019, and January 3, 2020, had been declared a one-off non-working public sector holiday throughout Romania to link the Christmas and New Year public holidays of Romania with the preceding weekend.

The aforementioned declaration of December 27, 2019, and January 3, 2020, as a one-off non-working public sector holiday throughout Romania thus amends the lists of public holidays for 2019 and 2020 in Romania (2019-11-17 and 2019-01-04), once more (2019-08-01), though only for the Romanian public sector.

As is common in such cases (2018-12-18, 2013-12-13, 2013-08-14, 2012-11-28 and 2012-04-26) when bridge public holidays are declared in Romania, the aforementioned one-off non-working public sector holidays will be compensated by overtime work to be performed in January 2020.

Since this past summer (2019-07-25), when Romania's President, Klaus Iohannis, signed into law, the public holidays amendments ("Law no. 156/2019 for the completion of art. 139 of Law no. 53/2003 regarding the Labor Code"), the Romanian government must now announce before January 15th, at the latest, any and all one-off public holidays it intends to declare for the current calendar year.
