Religion at the workplace

Believers are legally entitled to obtain leave from work during major holidays. The Law on Celebration of Religious Holidays envisages the right to paid leave to celebrate a religious holiday. This Law prescribes misdemeanor liability, punishable by a fine against the responsible person in a company, institution, another legal person, State authority or the entrepreneur failing to provide paid leave to an employee during celebration of a religious holiday.
