Summer is coming soon, and many have already begun to look forward to the holidays. Here is an overview of the most important rules in the Holiday Act that employers should be aware of in order for this summer's holiday planning to go smoothly.
On 1st May, the workers' international day of struggle is celebrated over large parts of the world. The day was introduced and marked as a demonstration day for the labor movement for the first time in 1890. The background was a demonstration in Chicago a few years earlier, where 200,000 American workers went on strike for the introduction of an eight-hour workday and several were killed in clashes between protesters and police. Because the strike had begun on 1st May, the date was chosen as nternational day of demonstration - and has been ever since.
