The list is from the Federal Office of Justice. But see also here from the canton itself: http://www.ne.ch/themes/travail/Pages/jours-feries.aspx

Easter Monday is definitively not an official holiday, but stores must be closed. Stores must also be closed on Pentecost Monday, and on the Monday after the Federal Day of Prayer and Repentance (strange tradition, any other canton which has that?).

That it is not an official holiday means that you have to be careful about contractual time limits but you could also drive lorries, make the same noise and do the same work as on any other working day (just if you have the urge to mow the lawn or cut down some trees), or even called in for work (perfect for doing the inventory in stores).

Vaud also has the Jeune federal and I believe Geneva has one too. It just so happens to be this coming Monday.

You won't find anybody working on any of those 'unofficial' holidays here unless they work in 'essential' jobs (hospitals, fire service, police etc) I can tell you that for nothing. There certainly wouldn't be any apartment handover on that day.

JeŻne federal is on Sunday As it is already a Sunday it has not be listed extra https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Je%C3%...3%A9d%C3%A9ral

And in Geneva it is JeŻne genevois, which is a Thursday.

In Vaud the Monday after JeŻne federal is indeed a proper official holiday.

The day off is Monday which is what you said in your previous post. The day after the jeŻne federal is a holiday.
