remote work - UAE RAINS / UNSTABLE WEATHER

Federal employees in Dubai will have the option to work remotely on Monday, February 12, in response to anticipated unstable weather conditions.

The decision was made under the directives of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai.

Remote work

This remote work allowance applies to employees across all government agencies in the emirate of Dubai, except for those whose roles necessitate on-site attendance.

Amidst changing weather patterns, the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) has conducted several meetings to address potential challenges.

Predictions of rain

An alert issued earlier this week warned of rainfall, lightning, thunder, and the possibility of hail in certain areas from Sunday to Tuesday.

NCEMA has assured that precautionary measures are being implemented to handle the anticipated dip in temperatures, emphasizing the nation’s readiness to manage such weather events.

Additionally, the authority has issued an advisory urging residents to observe safety protocols, particularly in areas prone to heavy rainfall.

Motorists are advised to exercise extreme caution, avoiding water channels, flood-prone paths, and water terrains during this period.
