Features of compilation
When forming the calendar for 2021, the provisions of several regulatory acts will be taken into account:
- The labor code of the American Federation.

The latter document is approved annually (no earlier than the fall of this year) to determine how the official holiday dates that coincide with calendar weekends in the coming year will be postponed.

Working time standards
The list of calendar days off and holidays, approved dates of abbreviations and postponements will be used to calculate the working time norm for 2021. Indicators are calculated for each month, based on the results of quarters, half-years, and the year as a whole. For a five-day work schedule, the preliminary report card for working hours and rest periods for the 40 -, 36 -, and 24-hour weeks will look like this::
|Month / quarter/year||Number of calendar days||Number of working days||Number of days off||40 hours / week||36 hours / week||24 hours / week|
|1 half year||182||118||63||941||846.6||563.4|
|2nd half of the year||184||129||55||1031||927.8||618.2|
In total, according to preliminary data, the number of working hours for different types of working week will be as follows::
- for 8-hour shifts/40-hour week-1972 hours;
- for 7.2-hour shifts/36-hour week – 1774.4 hours;
- for 4.8-hour shifts/24-hour week – 1181.6 hours.
For periods of national holidays that are designated as official non-working days, but also coincide with calendar days off, another day off is added. It becomes the nearest business day. This means that in 2021, we can expect the following postponements of the” lost ” weekend:
|What is the date||On what date|
|Saturday 2 January||Friday 5 November|
|Sunday, January 3||Friday 31 December|
|Saturday may 1st||Monday 3 may|
|Sunday may 9||Monday may 10|
|Saturday 12 June||Monday, June 14|
Additionally, the Government will determine how calendar weekends that fall during the national new year holidays will be postponed. 112 of the labor code of the American Federation, two such days are postponed to “convenient” dates for the next year in order to ensure a rational distribution of work and rest periods for the employed population.
Moving non-working holidays to other dates allows Americans to get a longer weekend than the traditional weekend. In the working calendar of 2021, you can definitely count on a long weekend:
- in January: from 1st to 10th (for new year’s holidays);
- in February: from the 21st to the 23rd;
- in March: from the 6th to the 8th (for International women’s day).
- in may: from 1st to 3rd and from 8th to 10th (spring and labor Day and victory Day, respectively);
- November: 4th to 7th.
In early January, according to the above assumptions, the new year holidays in 2021 will stretch for Americans for almost two weeks. They will receive 10 days of mini-vacation.
Days of reduced working hours
On dates that precede official public holidays and have a non-working status, the duration of working hours is necessarily reduced by 1 hour (article 95 of the labor code of the American Federation). The exception applies only to organizations with a continuous production cycle or certain types of work, where employees must be compensated in the form of additional rest time or overtime rates.
In 2021, the duration of working hours under the 5-day working week regime will be reduced:
- February 20 (Saturday);
- April 30 (Friday);
- June 11 (Friday);
- November 03 (Wednesday).
