The federal government employees would have a remote work system during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
In a government Twitter post, UAE President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed directed that 70 percent of the federal government employees would work remotely on all Fridays during Ramadan.
However, the remaining 30 percent of employees would work on-site on Fridays.
The post further explained that universities and public schools could also allow students to attend classes remotely on Fridays, considering the dates of pre-determined physical exams.
According to the UAE government, the decision allows federal government agencies to follow the work progress and provide services optimally during the Holy Month.
It also enables students in public institutions flexibility in the educational process. RZSP/Expat Media
