The government of Albania establishes national holidays. These are called red-letter days and are paid holidays under Albanian law.
Weekly holidays are 36 hours periods that include Sunday. The weekly holiday is not a paid holiday. Employers may not require employees to work on Sundays or official red-lettered days. Employees have a right to full pay for red-lettered days, which if they fall on weekly holiday (Sunday) shall be observed on the following Monday.
