In the work plan for 2022, employers and employees have to calculate with two moved working days. The first moved working day relates to the long weekend of 15 March while the second one comes at All Saints' Day in autumn.
In 2022, 5 rest days will fall on weekends on 1 January, 1 May, 20 August, 23 October and 25 December, the first day of Christmas. From the three four-day weekends two will come in spring and one in autumn. We will have a total of 5 long weekends. There will be no moved working days in the Christmas period this time.
Taking the 5 rest days falling on weekends into account, we can calculate with a total of 5 extra rest days in the first and 3 in the second half of 2022.
