The Northern Mariana Islands currently celebrate 14 public holidays. These include the 9 national holidays celebrated in the mainland United States as well as 5 holidays that are specific to the islands.
Public holidays in the Northern Mariana Islands are non-working holidays. Employers are not required to provide pay for these days unless it is specified in the work contract.
Employees who are required to work on a non-working holiday are eligible for a day off in lieu for the holiday unless their work contract provides for premium pay on that day. All public holiday laws are regulated under Commonwealth Law 15-37.
The Governor of the Island of Saipan reserves the right to declare one-time holidays during the year. These holidays are often reserved for special events. Businesses must comply with any one-time holidays that are stated.
