Change to May Day Public Holiday 2020

The May Day public holiday in 2020 will change from Monday 4 May to Friday 8 May to coincide with the VE Day 75th anniversary commemorations.  This decision follows both national and Scottish Government to change the date of the Bank holiday to Friday 8 May 2020.

What does this mean for staff? 

Offices and schools will be open on Monday 4 May and will be a normal work day.  Offices and schools will be closed on Friday 8 May, if staff have to work on 8 May, payment will be made at enhanced rate of pay where applicable.
