“According to the new arrangement under the General Holidays and Employment Legislation (Substitution of Holidays)(Amendment) Ordinance 2011, when either Lunar New Year’s Day, the second day of Lunar New Year or the third day of Lunar New Year falls on a Sunday, the fourth day of Lunar New Year is designated as a statutory and general holiday in substitution.  As Lunar New Year’s Day in 2013 falls on a Sunday, the fourth day of Lunar New Year will be designated as a holiday in substitution.  Under the new arrangement, employees working on a Monday-to-Friday basis will benefit because their statutorily provided holiday in substitution will not overlap with their Saturday day off.  For other employees working on a five-and-a-half-day week basis with half day off on Saturday, they can also benefit from the new substitution arrangement.  As a result, many employees will be able to enjoy a longer Lunar New Year holiday in 2013.
