Employees in Panama are entitled to 13 paid public holidays. If a public holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday is observed as the holiday. In addition to the 13 statutory public holidays, employees are allowed time off to celebrate the Presidential Inauguration, which takes place every five years. Employees required to work on a public holiday are compensated at the rate of double the regular salary, known as double time.
