2022 Public Holidays Ecuador Service

The above is the list of 2022 public holidays declared in Ecuador which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Ecuador holiday calendar for 2022 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.

Holidays in the Republic of Ecuador are structured by the Ministry of Labor and are now are in keeping with the code of practice outlined in the Labor Code dispensed on June 30, 1977, and far along established in 1994. Only a single amendment was made to the Ecuadorian labor code— in the year of 2007 by Decree 2369. This decree has made the length of time for the Carnival celebration to be higher than before.

Holidays in Ecuador are mostly from the Catholic religious calendar, the nation's leading religion. Such holidays have now-blended with homegrown traditions that were there before the arrival of the Spanish. Other significant holidays celebrate the hard-won independence of the nation, from Spain, with nationwide celebrations and regional jubilees.

The labor laws in the Republic of Ecuador instruct the employer to give workers a day off to celebrate its nationally-acknowledged holidays. The pay for the employees on the given days is hooked on the contractual terms between the member of staff and employer. The employees that are required to be at work on a holiday due to the state of their position, or their industry, are entitled to one day off of work after the holiday celebrations.

The Republic of Ecuador appears to be a firm believer in long weekends to celebrate public holidays. If a traditional holiday takes place in between the week, the government may alter the date for the commemoration in the year to a Monday or a Friday to allow for the beloved extended weekends.
