Q COSTA RICA NEWS – Many were confused Monday by a report in La Prensa indicating that Monday December 26 and Monday January 2, as established by the Ministerio de Trabajo y Desarollo Laborla (Mitradel), in accordance with Article 46 and 47 of the Labour Code, are a paid holiday (feriado in Spanish).

feriado-falsoBut note, La Prensa is a Panamanian publication and the notice of the legal paid holiday is for Panama and DOES NOT APPLY in Costa Rica.

Here, the legal holidays are December 25 and January 1 as established by the Ministerio de Trabajo y Seguridad Social (MTSS) in accordance with article 148 del Código de Trabajo.

And furthermore, the holidays ARE NOT TRANSFERABLE, that is they are applied on the day they fall (this year on a Sunday) and no day off on the Monday. If you are required to work on the holiday days, you get paid double. If not, enjoy the day off you would have gotten always. Period.

The confusion stems from people mistaking the La Prensa in Panama with La Prensa Libre in Costa Rica. Similar confusions occur in with La Nacion. In Costa Rica, the country’s main newspaper is La Nacion (nacion.com), in Argentina it is La Nacion (lanacion.com, which redirects to lanacion.com.ar).
