Many countries observe [some of] their public holidays on a Monday or Friday regardless on the day it falls. What's stopping SA from doing the same where possible?
I’m of the understanding it only happens like that when it falls on a weekend, not a random day in the week.
I don’t see any need to change from the SA system as it stands at present. Makes calendars much simpler as it’s always the same process.
I prefer the case for a Thursday or Tuesday or Wednesday as you can easily pad it with a leave day or two to make for a nice long weekend. If it fell on a Monday or Friday always you’d need to use more leave to achieve the same.
