Notes

  • Half Day holidays are observed on Christmas Eve (December 24th) and New Year's Eve (December 31st)
  • Ponto facultativos are types of holidays unique to Brazil. It is up to an employer whether they allow employees to take this day. In practice, the holidays are widely observed by the public sector and large companies.
