New state holiday


The Sejm on 24 September passed legislation establishing a new state holiday on 6 January, celebrated by the Catholic Church as the Three Kings Day, effective from 1 January.

To soften the impact on business, MPs at the same time voted to abolish the right for employees to claim days off as compensation for holidays falling on Saturdays.

According to the estimates of the ruling Civic Platform (PO) party, which sponsored the legislation, the new state holiday will yield nine additional non-working days over 2011-2020, but the other change will enable the economy to “recoup” eight working days during this period.
