Moldova's Ministry of Labor and Social Protection has drafted a Government decision on the transfer of a day off in 2022 which would declare Monday, March 7, 2022, as a one-off public holiday to bridge the one-day gap between the weekend and the March 8 annual public holiday of Moldova (Cu privire la transferul unei zile de odihnă în anul 2022).

The declaration of Monday, March 7, 2022, as a one-off public holiday in Moldova, if approved, would be in addition to the list of 2022 annual public holidays on Moldova (2021-12-23).

This additional March 7, 2022, public holiday would be compensated by the declaration of Saturday, March 12, 2022, as a regular working day.

Bridge public holidays have often been declared around the March 8 annual public holiday; in 2018 (2018-01-24), in 2016 (2016-03-01), in 2012 (2012-02-22), and in 2011 (2011-02-18).

The salient parts of the aforementioned draft decree read "În conformitate cu prevederile articolului 111 alineatul (5) din Codul Muncii al Republicii Moldova nr. 154-XV din 28 martie 2003 (Monitorul Oficial al Republicii Moldova, 2003, nr.159-162, art. 648), cu modificările ulterioare, Guvernul HOTĂRĂŞTE: 1. Ziua de 7 martie 2022 se consideră zi de odihnă, iar ziua de 12 martie 2022 – zi lucrătoare." and it leaves room for the signature of the Moldovan Minister of Labor and Social Protection, Marcel Spatari, and the Prime Minister, Natalia Gavrilița.
