    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – During Holy Week in Costa Rica, Thursday, April 17 and Friday April 18 of this year are the mandatory paid days, as stipulated in Article 148 of the Labor Code.

    The Labor Ministry and Social Security (MTSS) reminds the populationfor this reason no working person is required to work these holidays, only if they agree to work, in which case the company shall pay double. However, if a worker refuses to work these days, they cannot be punished by their employer.

    It is important to understand that companies have weekly payment, i.e., recognizing only the days actually worked in the week, so they must pay for the full week of work. If someone works during the holidays, the additional salary should be doubled for every day.

    If someone works overtime on Holy Thursday or Friday, the payment must be triple their hourly wage.

    If the company or institution decides to close down the entire Holy Week, they will have to declare the whole week as a holiday and issue paychecks as normal.

    Regardless of whether a company is private, national, transnational or international, they must grant these holidays by law.
