UAE Employees Return to Work in Offices

UAE Employees Return to Work in Offices - Coming Soon in UAE
28 May 2020

From Sunday, May 31, the work attendance rate in offices will amount to 50%.

In Dubai, there has been a gradual increase in capacities for offices from 30 percent to 50 percent. It seems that normal life comes back as all restrictions get eased and the private sector offices can now operate at 50 percent, with adhering strict safety measures.

According to the directive issued by HH Sheikh Hamdan, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, as of Sunday, May 31, 50 percent of public sector staff will resume work in the office. Two weeks later, 100 percent of government employees will be back in the workplace by June 14.

“In the past months, the Dubai government has proven its full capability to work remotely, within smart environments that rely on highly efficient technologies and infrastructure. None of the vital services were affected despite the precautionary measures and movement restrictions imposed,” Sheikh Hamdan added.

Some employees will be allowed to continue working remotely. These include:
• pregnant women;
• the elderly people;
• employees who suffer from chronic diseases or weak immunity;
• people of determination;
• employees who care for their children from grade 9 and below;
• employees who have children in foster care, or who care for their home;
• employees who require permanent health care under emergency conditions.
