In Latvia, holiday entitlement is generally set forth in provisions contained in an employment contract or union bargaining agreement.
Most public holidays in Latvia are observed on the designated day. If Restoration Day or Proclamation Day falls on a weekend, the following Monday is observed as a paid holiday.
In addition to public holidays, all workers in Latvia are entitled to two Special Working Days, observed in January and June, respectively. Workers are also entitled to take Whitsunday as a paid holiday.
