In accordance with the provisions of the Federal Law concerning the Regulation of Labour Relations, if a worker works for more than eight hours within a 24-hour period, the additional hours will be deemed overtime, for which the worker is to be paid,

Establishments caught breaking the rule will be fined AED 5,000 per worker, and a maximum of AED 50,000.

Depending on the extent of the breach, the company could also have its file suspended or its status downgraded in the MoHRE's classification system.
