HA NOI (VNS) — The Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs yesterday officially announced that government officers and workers would have a nine-day holiday for the upcoming Tet (Lunar New Year).
The holidays fall between February 6 and February 14, 2016. The ministry said government officers and workers would not be required to work over the weekend before the holiday to compensate for the four additional days off because four days of the Tet holiday adjoin the weekend.
Under the Labour Code, employees are given five days off work for the traditional New Year. — VNS
