The Slovenian Parliament has approved, by a vote of 72 to 13, legislation which will prevent shops from opening on Sundays and public holidays, with the stated aim of "protecting the rights of workers and in particular – to give them more family time on the weekends".

Sundays are already marked-out in the annual list of public holidays in Slovenia (2019-11-27, 2018-12-02, 2017-11-11, 2016-12-29, 2016-01-10, 2015-01-05, 2013-12-30, 2013-01-09, 2012-01-04, 2011-01-05 and 2010-01-06), which always stipulate that public holidays in Slovenia do not follow the sliding holiday concept; that is to say, when a fixed-date public holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the following Monday is a normal business day, and, in addition, which include 2 Sunday-always public holidays.
