The working week in the UAE can differ from business to business. The private sector generally operates from Sunday to Thursday with Friday and Saturday being the weekend with 48 working hours per week as per the UAE Labour Law. A lot of businesses have a 6-day working week. Shopping Malls, Restaurants, Bars and Attractions are usually open daily, without any closing dates. During the Holy Month of Ramadan, working hours usually are reduced to 6 hours per day.
Public holidays are as announced by the UAE government. Eid holiday dates may be subject to change according to the lunar cycle. Whilst this is a guideline of the scheduled public holidays, specific public holidays and different working hours will be announced for Taaleem and its schools as communicated by Taaleem Central Office.
