The Romanian Minister of Labor, Raluca Turcan, has finally announced that the Romanian government had decided not to declare a one-off non-working public sector holiday on Monday, May 31, 2021, to link the upcoming June 1st, Children's Day public holiday of Romania with the preceding weekend.
Last week (2021-05-19), we had reported that a decision by the Romanian Government was expected as to whether or not to declare a one-off non-working public sector holiday on Monday, May 31, 2021, despite the terms of the public holidays amendments ("Law no. 156/2019 for the completion of art. 139 of Law no. 53/2003 regarding the Labor Code"), requiring that the Romanian government announce before January 15th, at the latest, any and all one-off public holidays it intends to declare for the upcoming calendar year (2019-07-25).
The declaration of Monday, May 31, 2021, as a one-off non-working public sector holiday, would have amended the lists of public holidays for 2021 though only for the Romanian public sector (2020-11-23), and would have been compensated by overtime work or a working weekend day (2019-12-20).
