National Holiday in honor of George Price
The Prime Minister of Belize, Hon. Dean Oliver Barrow has announced that Monday, September 26, 2011, has been declared a National Holiday in honor of the Rt. Hon. George Cadle Price.
Ambergris Today contacted Mr. Jorge Matus of the Labor Department in Belmopan who explained to us that Monday, September 26, is a National Holiday and just like any other Public and Bank Holiday throughout the year employers are required to pay time and half to their employees who work on that day.
It will not be known until later this year if September 26 will be added to the list of other Public and Bank Holidays for the nation of Belize. If an SI is submitted and approved, then the announcement will be posted along with the list of other holidays for 2012 that is usually posted around November. Ambergris Today will keep you posted.
