rawda samy - | Business

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation announced the date of the ban on working in open areas in the Emirates, which will continue to apply for a period of 3 months, starting from June 15 and ending on September 15.

The day that the Emirates will begin enforcing their prohibition on working in public places.

The date that the ban on working in open spaces in the Emirates will go into effect was announced by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation on June 15. The prohibition will be in effect for a period of three months, beginning on June 15 and ending on September 15.

Dates for banning work under the sun

Between the 15th of June and the 15th of September in 2023, the UAE Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation has issued a prohibition on performing work outside and in open locations between the hours of 12:30 pm and 3:00 pm daily. This ban will be in effect.

Objectives of implementing the decision to ban working under the sun in the summer

According to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the implementation of the ban on working under the sun is being carried out in accordance with Ministerial Resolution No. (44) of 2022 regarding occupational health and safety and labor accommodations. The purpose of this resolution is to provide a decent environment for workers that takes into account their protection from occupational hazards and spares them injuries and occupational diseases.

The length of time that workers are required to put in each day in the UAE during the summertime

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation came to the conclusion that during the months of the summer ban, the total amount of time spent working each day, including the morning and evening shifts, should not go beyond 8 hours.

The duration of daily working hours in the UAE during the summer

The Ministry has made it abundantly clear that if a worker is employed for longer than that within a period of twenty-four hours, the additional time is considered additional work for which the worker receives an additional wage in accordance with the provisions of the Law Regulating Labor Relations. In addition, employers are required to provide a shaded place that ensures the worker's comfort.

The worker's rights when working hours exceed 8 hours in the summer

The decision makes an exception for certain works in which it is necessary for technical reasons to work non-stop, such as the work of laying asphalt mixture and pouring concrete if it cannot be implemented or completed after the ban period, as well as the work that is necessary to ward off danger or repair faults that affect society in general, such as cutting feeding lines. The decision also makes an exception for the work that is necessary to repair faults that affect society in general, such as cutting feeding lines. Water, power outages, traffic jams, and other severe disruptions all occurred. The exception applies to any and all works for which the implementation of the work requires a permit from a competent government agency because of the impact the work will have on the flow of traffic and services, and the completion of the work requires continuous labor. This includes the cutting or diversion of main traffic roads, as well as the cutting of lines carrying electric current and communications.

A fine for violating the ban on working under the sun

If the terms and controls of the ban are broken by an employer, they will be subject to a fine of 5,000 dirhams for each worker that they employ in violation of the ban, with the maximum fine being increased to 50,000 dirhams if they employ numerous workers in breach of the ban controls.

The rights of the worker in cases of exception to the decision banning work under the sun in the Emirates

In the event that the work is carried out despite the decision to prohibit working in the sun, the employer is required to provide cold drinking water commensurate with the number of workers and the conditions of safety and public health, as well as means and materials for irrigation, such as salts and others that have been approved for use by the local authorities in the country. In addition, the employer is required to provide first aid at the workplace, appropriate industrial cooling means, umbrellas from direct suction, and other safety equipment.
