PERSONNEL Management Secretary John Kali has announced the shutdown days for the 2016/2017 Christmas and New Year period.
Kali said the shutdown period starts after lunch on Friday, Dec 23 (half day) and ends on Monday Jan 2, 2017.
All public servants are to return to work on Tuesday, Jan 3.
Kali said the three paid shut down days were Dec 28, 29 and 30.
“They are not to be accrued if not taken. They are for the convenience of closing the Government offices,” he said.
“Officers that are required to work to cater for essential and emergency services and rostered work arrangements will not be paid overtime, but will be awarded with a paid day off at a future date.”
He said public health authorities, hospitals, police force, Correctional Services, Defence Force, public utilities and other organisations providing essential and emergency services would not be shut down and would make their own internal arrangement to cater for essential and emergency services during the Christmas and New Year period.
