The UAE’s Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has announced the official work timings for private sector employees during the holy month of Ramadan. The ministry said the number of work hours would be reduced by two during the holy month.
Typically, private sector employees work eight hours a day or 48 a week. This will get reduced to six hours a day, or 36 a week.
Any additional hours of work may be considered overtime, for which the workers will need to be paid extra.
