New rules for public and national holidays in Bulgaria

Yesterday the Bulgarian government approved changes in the Labour Law concerning public and national holidays. Until now if a holiday fell on Tuesday or Thursday the government would usually declare the Monday before or the Friday after an official non-working day (a working Saturday would be then designated to make up for the missed day) meaning we would get 4 workfree days in a row. Or even 6 days in a row! As was the case in May 2014 when 1st May was Thursday and 6st May was Tuesday, both being official holidays in Bulgaria, this meant we got to rest from Thursday till Tuesday! Many people including the business sector disapproved of this practice for various reasons – disruption in the work process, delays in payments, disrupted communication between institutions, less efficient workers, worse labour productivity, stress and so on. This practice of rearranging working days is now a thing of the past. Public and national holidays will no longer be connected with the weekend to form the so called Bridge Holiday – when they fall during working days only the particular day will be non-working. When they happen to be during weekends the following Monday is to compensate and will be a day off work. The changes come in effect from 1st January 2017 meaning 2nd January (Monday) is officially the first non-working day under the new law.
