Azerbaijan declares 9 non-working days over Novruz holiday
Azerbaijan has declared 9 days off over Novruz holiday.

With the decision dated 24 November 2014, the Cabinet of Ministers has designated 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 March 2015 as Novruz holiday.

In accordance with the Labor Code, working and non-working days will replace each other because March 21 and 22 fall on Saturday and Sunday this year. So March 25 and 26 will be non-working days. With another decision dated 19 February 2015, the Cabinet of Ministers has decided to replace the non-working day 29 March 2015 with 27 March working day in order for the working and non-working days to be in consecutive order. Since March 28 also swings to Saturday, March 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 and 28 March will be non-working days.
