2020 Public Holidays Algeria Service

The above is the list of 2020 public holidays declared in Algeria which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Algeria holiday calendar for 2020 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.

Algeria celebrates ten national holidays each year. These holidays are specified by the law n63/278 which was published on July 26. 1963. This law allows the president to approve the addition of more holidays or to reduce the existing number of holidays.

Of the ten holidays, five are fixed dates, and the other five are moveable. The moveable holidays are attributed to the fact that they are religious holidays, whose dates are determined by Muslim religious leaders in the country. The leaders use the lunar cycle, solely dependent on the moon’s positioning and citing, which varies from one year to the next. At times, a holiday may be changed if it falls on a day deemed to be one that may bring bad luck.

According to the labor laws in Algeria, all workers should be paid for the public holidays and given the day off from duty. If the nature of the job requires that an employee works on a holiday, then they must get an overtime allowance or be given a separate off day to compensate for the worked holiday.

Several Algerian holidays are celebrated over a few days, ranging from two to three days. Businesses and employees are required to not only acknowledge all these days but to pay their employees according to the set laws.

While the official working hours in Algeria are 8 am to noon and 1 pm to 5 pm, during a holiday like Ramadhan, work relatively slows down, and the working hours are adjusted to between 9 am to 3 pm.
