Workers in Luxembourg are even closer to getting an extra public holiday in May and an additional day of annual leave with a new law expected to be voted in parliament next week.
On Tuesday, the parliamentary committee responsible considered the Council of State’s opinion and greenlighted the work on the law so far, a spokesperson for the Chamber of Deputies told Delano.
On Thursday parliamentarians will agree the agenda for next week, when it is likely to schedule the final vote.
The law would provide a third public holiday in May, on the ninth, and a twenty-sixth day of holiday, for those receiving the minimum 25-day holiday allowance in Luxembourg.
The parliamentary spokesperson explained the latter only benefits employees whose work contracts specify “Congé Légal” (paid leave) plus a special number of days. It does not apply to contracts which state “25 days” plus a specific number of days.
