2022 Public Holidays Mozambique Service
The above is the list of 2022 public holidays declared in Mozambique which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Mozambique holiday calendar for 2022 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.
Mozambique has a total of nine holidays in a year. The government plays a critical role in ensuring that the organizations respect the laws and do not subject their workers to work on holidays. Under the labor laws of Mozambique, the holiday that falls on the weekend gets pushed to the Monday of the following week. Many countries have religious holidays; Mozambique falls short on the list as it does not have any religion based holiday to commemorate. They even have a family day as a holiday in December but lack one celebrating a saint in one of their religions. The nation has many religions making it impossible to select a holiday of each faith to standardize for the entire country. The diversity of faith in the country makes holidays celebration random. As different religions find ways of honoring their saints, the government does not acknowledge these days and thus does not offer off days for workers.
As declared in section 10, articles 95 under the labor code, workers get to receive a day off for a holiday, whether they are working for the government or not. Employers have to recognize these holidays and plan their operations in a manner that will relieve their workers when the day comes.
These holidays are referred to as ‘ad-hoc’ holidays. These holidays are mandatory and required to be respected by government and non-governmental organizations. An example of the ad hoc holiday could present itself when a senior official or person such as the pope chooses to come to the country.
