UAE announces reduced work hours for public sector employees during Ramadan.

The United Arab Emirates has announced that during the month of Ramadan, employees in the public sector will have fewer hours to work.

All employees, whether they are fasting or not, are required to adhere to the working hours.

During the month of Ramadan, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) established the official working hours for personnel working in the public sector. The number of hours that federal employees must work will significantly decrease, according to a circular that the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) distributed on XXX.

Official working hours during the month of Ramadan in the Emirates

During the month of Ramadan, the government of the Emirates maintains its official business hours.

During the Islamic holy month, all government agencies and ministries will be open from nine in the morning until 2:30 in the afternoon, Monday through Thursday, and six in the morning until twelve in the afternoon on Friday. Despite the fact that certain positions could call for longer hours, the majority of employees in the private sector also benefit from having their work hours decreased.

Remote work system during Ramadan in the Emirates.

During the holy month of Ramadan, the Emirates implemented a remote work scheme.

The authority made the announcement of the hours, which included the potential of allowing employees to work from home on Fridays during the month, provided that the percentage of employees working from home does not exceed seventy percent of the total number of employees hired by the entity. This was done in accordance with the restrictions that were approved.

The Dubai Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department's (IACAD) Hijri calendar predicts that Ramadan will most likely begin on Tuesday, March 12, 2024.

The working hours are applicable to both employees who are fasting and employees who are not fasting, which makes it easier for staff members to participate in cultural traditions and spiritual activities during this holy month.
