Tomorrow, Friday, the UAE will witness the first government working day in the country’s history, within a new weekly work system.
Employees of the federal government sector and local governments, with the exception of Sharjah, begin their work for a period of 4 and a half hours, from 7.30 in the morning until 12:00 in the afternoon, according to the implementation of the implementation of the new system of weekly work announced by the UAE government, and entered into force at the beginning of the new year 2022, to be 4 working days, from Monday to Thursday, half a working day on Friday, and the weekly holiday on Saturday and Sunday, in addition to Friday in Sharjah, according to “Russia Today”.
From Friday, mosques will start unifying the date for the Friday sermon and Friday prayers, to be at 1:15 in the afternoon throughout the year, and in Sharjah, the Friday sermon, prayer and residence will remain on schedule, according to the Hijri calendar..
The new work system will include the possibility of applying flexible working hours, and the remote work system on Friday in the federal authorities, provided that the federal authorities approve the implementation mechanisms, as required by the interest of the workflow in these authorities..
The new weekly work system will enhance the UAE’s position on the business map as a global economic center, as it will contribute to strengthening the integration of the national economy with various economies and global markets..
And it enhances its important and effective strategic position in the global economy, especially since the new system of weekly work ensures that the days of exchanges and commercial, economic and financial dealings are identical with the countries that adopt the weekly holiday on Saturdays and Sundays..
The adoption of the new system of working days and the weekly holiday will support the financial sector, as it will harmonize with working days in international stock exchanges and financial markets, in addition to international banks, and thus the new system will enhance the performance of stock markets, banks, insurance companies, and foreign trade for the Emirates..
