If a certain date in your election calendar falls on a Sunday or on a day on which your company usually does not work (i.e. an inactivity day such as a Saturday), then the action must take place, at the latest, on the day before that Sunday or usual rest day. There are however two exceptions: (i) if the deadline for lodging an appeal with the labour court falls on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, then the deadline is postponed to the next working day; (ii) if the employer receives notification of the replacement of a candidate on a Sunday or inactivity day and it is thus impossible for the company to post the final list of candidates on the eve of receipt of this replacement, then the employer will be allowed to post this list on the next normal working day.
