UAE Announces Ramadan Working Hours for Public Sector

Since Ramadan is just around the corner, The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) announced the reduced working hours for the public sector in Ramadan on Mar. 4, Monday. 

During Ramadan, all ministries and federal agencies will be working from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., from Monday to Thursday. 

On Fridays, public sector employees will have to work from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

FAHR has also confirmed that ministries and federal agencies can implement approved remote or flexible working systems during working days during Ramadan.

The flexible working system should adhere to federal employee regulations and stay within the limits of the approved number of working hours per day. 

Public sector employees can be granted the flexibility to work remotely on Fridays during Ramadan. 

However, this flexibility should not exceed 70 percent of the total number of employees, according to approved guidelines. 

The reduced working hours apply to both fasting and non-fasting employees.
