Labour Ministry Updates on Christmas Holiday


The Christmas holiday will be observed this year on Monday, December 26.

While Boxing Day will be observed on Tuesday, December 27.

A statement from the Ministry of Labour says this is in accordance with the Holidays Act, which stipulates that if Christmas falls on a Sunday – as it does this year – then the 26th and 27th of December are to be observed as holidays.

The Ministry says they’ve received many public enquires about the holiday.

They’re also advising that employees who work on the public holidays are entitled to be paid at double time rates.
