Public sector employees in the UAE will get a free day to celebrate the New Year.
The Dubai Government Human Resources Department .
Official working hours will continue on Monday, January 3, 2022, in view of the new work day work system declared by the UAE government.
Beginning January 1, 2022, the country will change into a four-and-a-half-day week’s worth of work, with Saturday, Sunday and Friday half-day shaping the new end of the week.
December 31 is a Friday this year. Since it’s as yet in 2021, the day would be an official holiday. Saturday, January 1, is an holiday too. Since the new week’s worth of work produces results from the New Year, Sunday, January 2, is an holiday, as well.
That implies government workers and some private area employees will get three days off: December 31, January 1 and January 2.
