In August 2021, Ukrainians with a five-day working week will have 19 working days and 12 days off. An additional weekend will be Independence Day, celebrated on 24 August.
This is stated in article 73 of the Labor Code, which establishes holidays and non-working days.
This year, Independence Day will be celebrated on Tuesday, that is why the Cabinet of Ministers moved the working day from Monday, August 23, to Saturday, August 28. Thus, there will be four days off in a row - from 21 to 24 August.
