Midday break in summer


As summer has started in the UAE and the heat levels have increased, the Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratisation has announced an official midday break for all outdoor workers, beginning June 15.

The Minister of Human Resources & Emiratisation passed this rule in 2004 to protect workers from working under direct sunlight and summer heat, from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m.

As residents, it’s our job to be mindful and report instances where workers are working in tough conditions. Offer help if you can, and provide boxes of ice water to camp sites and security guards at your home.
