Labour Standards Act (Chapter 4: Article 55) (Public holidays)

Labour Standards Act (Chapter 4: Article 55) (Public holidays)

Currently, other than Labour Day, an employer is not obliged to provide paid leave on public holidays. However, in practice paid time off on public holidays is commonly granted; and recent amendments to the LSA (which begin to take effect from 1 January 2020) will make it mandatory to do so. The new law will initially apply only to corporations with 300 or more workers and most government-invested or government-controlled employers, before being extended to smaller companies in 2021 and 2022.
