DUBAI – The UAE’s mandatory midday break begins today to protect construction workers from working under the scorching heat of the sun.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation has mandated that the work break between 12:30 p.m. until 3 p.m. will continue until September 16.




Work days will be divided into morning shifts and evening shifts, with each shift totaling eight hours of work per day, said Saqr Gobash Saeed Gobash, Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation.

Workers required to work overtime will be given compensation, Gobash said.

“If business conditions require additional working hours, then that period is considered overtime. Workers shall be paid for a wage equal to the normal working hours, plus, an increase of not less than 25 per cent of that wage. The increase shall be at least 50 per cent of the worker’s wage if called for duty between 9 pm and 4 am,” Gobash said.

Part of the midday break rule also obliges companies to provide workers with shelter during resting periods, health kits, cold water, first aid, air conditioners and sunshades.

Companies found flouting the rule will be fined Dh5,000 per worker, up to a maximum of Dh50,000. The company also faces suspension of its operating license.
