The aforementioned announcement of the Labour Day public holiday being held on May 3rd, this year, is in line with last year's passage of amendments to the labour code of Costa Rica (paragraph 185 of Law No. 9875), whereby many of the 2020-2024 Costa Rican public holidays were moved to adjoin a nearby weekend (2020-07-18, 2020-07-02, 2020-06-17, 2020-06-02, 2020-05-07 and 2020-04-22).
