If you have been asked to work during the UAE National Day holidays, what is your compensation under the UAE law?
The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation previously announced that December 2, 3 and 4 will be paid holidays for private sector workers. Employees in the government sector have the same holidays, with work to resume on December 5.
