According To The Uae Cabinet Of Ministers Resolution Selected Categories Of Federal Government Employees Will Go On A Paid Leave

The UAE Cabinet of Ministers, headed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and ruler of Dubai, has decided to provide paid leave for workers of the federal government.

This step is part of a series of precautions taken by the UAE to control the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ruling states that married federal government employees can take fully paid leave to care for their children under the age of 16. These conditions do not apply to people who are in quarantine without contact with family members, by decision of the Ministry of Health and Prevention.

This regulation also applies to the employees whose spouses work in vital areas related to health, such as doctors, nurses, paramedics and other technical workers requiring contact with infected people, as well as to quarantine centers during an emergency period.

In accordance with the decision, the relevant federal authority may ask employees in the main technical specialties to work remotely, instead of going on vacation.

The resolution was adopted in accordance with the desire of the UAE government to support workers and provide them with a safe and healthy working environment, as well as protect the health and safety of civil servants and their families during the current crisis, which requires a lot of effort.
