The UAE Cabinet has directed all federal departments working in areas affected by strong and torrential rain, especially in the Emirates of Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah, that their non-essential employees work remotely on Thursday and Friday.

The decision excluded all federal departments concerned with civil defence, police and security entities addressing disasters, crises and emergencies, in addition to those concerned with community support dealing with reports related to damage of farms and UAE citizens properties.

The transportation for essential employees between their workplace and residence must be counted as within their working hours on these two days, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) said in a statement.
