TO ALL MEMBERS
COMMONWEALTH HEADS OF GOVERNMENT MEETING (CHOGM)
15TH NOVEMBER 2013
We have received many inquiries from members as to whether 15th November has been declared a "holiday" by the government in view of CHOGM being held in Colombo.
The Commissioner General of Labour informed me that 15th November has not been declared a holiday even for the public and banking sectors. In other words, it will be another working day.
However, depending on the location of your office/enterprise/factory, you may have to make your own decisions as to whether you wish to operate as usual on that day. This is a matter that each individual work place will need to decide on, depending on the circumstances.
