What if public holiday falls on weekend?
Holidays falling for example on Sunday, can be taken next working day. Usually you get a free day on Monday, which is directly after the public holiday. Not every Belgian company obeys this rule. Just be sure, please confirm this with your employer or employment agency that you are working for.
