Turkmenistan's President, Gurbanguly Berdimuhammadov, has signed a decree declaring Monday, May 25, 2020, as a non-working public holiday in Turkmenistan on account of the upcoming Oraza Bayram (End of Ramadan) public holiday falling on a Sunday in 2020.

The Labour Code of Turkmenistan does not specify any systematic compensation when any of Turkmenistan's public holidays falls on a weekend.

However, paragraph 3 of Article 81 of the said Labour Code gives the President the discretionary powers to do so on a case-by-case basis, something that President Berdimuhammadov has done more and more frequently over past years (2017-08-30, 2013-10-25, 2012-12-22, 2012-02-11, 2011-12-30, 2010-12-10, 2010-03-19 and 2009-11-10), though with a recent hiatus of over a year (2018-08-21).
