In a move to accommodate the holy month of Ramadan, the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE) has declared a reduction of two working hours per day for all private sector employees across the UAE. This decision aims to honor the traditions and customs of the month, ensuring a balance between professional responsibilities and religious observance.

According to the Ministry, companies within the private sector have the flexibility to implement adjusted work patterns, including remote work arrangements, while adhering to the prescribed daily working hours during Ramadan. This initiative reflects a commitment to supporting employees’ well-being and facilitating a conducive work environment during this significant period.

Earlier, the UAE government unveiled the official working hours for public sector employees throughout Ramadan. Federal government employees are scheduled to work from 9 am to 2:30 pm, Monday to Thursday, and from 9 am to 12 pm on Fridays. These timings have been established to streamline operations while respecting the religious significance of the month.

The announcements from both the MoHRE and the UAE government underscore the nation’s dedication to fostering a harmonious balance between professional commitments and religious observance, promoting inclusivity and cultural sensitivity in the workplace.
