The Ministry of Labour of the Dominican Republic has issued a communiqué announcing that, for the private sector, Good Friday, on April 2, 2021, is the only day off during the 2021 holy week.

The aforementioned announcement ("El Ministerio de Trabajo reitera a la colectividad laboral que el Viernes Santo, fecha religiosa en que se conmemora la muerte de Jesucristo, es día feriado.") is in line with last autumn's announcement of the list of public holidays in the Dominican Republic for the year 2021 (2020-11-20), and the general list of public holidays follows the 1997 "Ley No. 139-97 mediante la cual los días feriados del calendario que coincidan con los días martes y miércoles, jueves o viernes" (1997-06-19).

The public sector, for its part benefits from additional time off, as per article 51 of Law 41-08 of Public Function and article 27 of Regulation number 523-09 of Labor Relations (2021-03-26).
