Romania’s Government decided that Tuesday, April 30, 2019 will be a public holiday for budgetary sector employees, since Wednesday, May 1 (Labour Day), is also a non-working day according to the Labour Code. Monday, April 29, is also free for everyone, as it is the second day of Easter.
Employees in the public sector will thus enjoy a five-day mini-holiday from Saturday, April 27, until Wednesday, May 1.
According to the Ministry of Labour and Social Justice (MMJS), the measure is adopted for allowing the employees' to recover their work capacity as well as stimulating tourism, News.ro reported.
"The provisions of the normative act do not apply to workplaces in which the activity can not be interrupted," the ministry said.
Public institutions will recover the extra day off by extending their working hours by May 31.
