Angola | Labor Alert | New holiday and practice of the term “bridge”

On.Corporate informs that Law nº 18/11 of September 28 has been published, which changes the articles 2º, 3º and 6º of Law nº 10/11 of February 16 which regulate the National Holidays Law.


Among the main changes is the fact that is added one more public holiday to the calendar, namely the March 23 “Southern Africa Liberation Day”.


It is also implemented the concept of the term “bridge”, in which, whenever the holiday coincides on a Tuesday or Thursdays, there is a suspension of the labor activity on the previous or next day, namely Monday or Friday, resulting in a long weekend.


To compensate labor suspension, is added one and half hour per day in the week prior to the holiday.
