Representatives of the UzLiDeP faction of the Legislative Chamber of Oliy Majlis of Uzbekistan have approved an amendment to the Labor Code of Uzbekistan, whereby public holidays that fall on a Sunday would give rise to a day in lieu public holiday on the following Monday, "to create convenience for many people".

Currently the government of Uzbekistan usually declares one-off bridge public holidays, rather than days in lieu public holidays, compensated by declaring a Saturday as a regular working day in Uzbekistan.

In the past this was done in a somewhat haphazard manner (2017-05-02, 2017-03-16, 2016-08-26, 2016-02-12, 2015-11-21, 2015-08-27, 2012-03-20, 2011-12-27, 2011-08-25, 2011-03-01, 2009-11-25, 2008-12-25, 2007-12-25, 2006-05-01, 2005-12-28 and 2005-12-05), though not always (2016-12-29 and 2014-12-26).

But, since 2018, these one-off public holidays are announced all at once, before the beginning of the year (2020-12-03, 2019-11-15, 2018-11-14 and 2017-12-28).
