There is a unique tradition in Hungary related to public holidays that is ususally strange for most of the foreigners. However, it must be adhered to by both employer and employees.
If a public holiday falls on a Tuesday or Thursday, we add the only working day next to it to the weekend, giving us a four-day long weekend.
Of course, there is no free lunch, the day off must be replaced at another time. This is usually a Saturday in the same month.
As a result, attendance sheets and timesheets sometimes show strange working weeks, and they need to be filled in accordingly.
In 2022, we will have two such long weekends.
March 15 is a national holiday that falls on Tuesday. Monday, March 14, will be replaced by Saturday, March 26.
November 1 will also be Tuesday, so October 31 will be replaced by Saturday, October 15, when it will be a working day.
Please plan and record working time accordingly.
