national day

December 2 marks the 43rd anniversary of the UAE and to celebrate there will be nation-wide festivities, and ensuring we get to enjoy these amazing events we have been given time off work.

It has been announced that private-sector workers will have December 2 off with work resuming on Wednesday, December 3. Saqr bin Ghobash, Minister of Labour, said those working in private-sector companies and departments will get a day’s paid leave.

Those working in the public-sector are in for a greater treat, with the state news agency Wam announcing that December 2, 3 and 4, will be a holiday with work resuming on Sunday December 7 , making that a five-day holiday including the weekend.
