The Ministry of Labour of the Dominican Republic has issued a communiqué announcing that, as per the current legislation on public sector holidays in the Dominican Republic, the upcoming Easter Dominican Republic public sector holidays would begin at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, March 31, 2021.

The aforementioned announcement ("el horario laboral y los días de trabajo para el sector público durante la Semana Santa será hasta las 4:00 de la tarde del miércoles 31 de marzo del presente año, en cumplimiento a lo dispuesto en el artículo 51 de la Ley 41-08 de Función Pública, y el artículo 27 del Reglamento número 523-09 de Relaciones Laborales") does not affect last autumn's official listing of public holidays in the Dominican Republic for the year 2021 (2020-11-20), as 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), rather than article 51 of Law 41-08 of Public Function and article 27 of Regulation number 523-09 of Labor Relations.
