UAE ministry calls on employers to allow flexible hours due to bad weather conditions

Employers must also take “late arrival to work into consideration”

Employees in the UAE should have flexible hours due to the unstable weather conditions in the country, the UAE’s Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation has said.

Employers must also take “late arrival to work into consideration”, the ministry said in a tweet.

The message comes even as the rain and strong winds are expected to hit the country this week, with flooding also predicted in some areas.

“Ensuring the safety of your employees amid the unstable weather conditions and rain in the UAE, we call on all employers to check the ministerial circular no. 8 for 2018 on employees’ safety in variable climate circumstances,” the ministry said on Twitter.

On Sunday, the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) issued an alert, urging residents to stay safe during the rainy period.

It said rainfall of different intensities would affect the entire country over this week.
