Government offices will resume work with 30 per cent capacity of the workforce from Sunday, May 31. This is according to a circular by the Ajman Department of Human Resources.
More employees will gradually start returning to work as the coronavirus crisis subsides.
The circular, which follows the Executive Council Chairman's Resolution No 7 of 2020 concerning the Ajman government's crisis-management policy, exempts a select of employee categories.
These include:
- Pregnant women
- People of determination
- People with compromised immunity and chronic diseases.
- Over 60s.
- Female employees catering for children in Grade 9 and below and children of determination whose conditions entail constant care.
- Employees in shared accommodation with people who are most susceptible to health risks and are in constant contact with them
Those covered by the decision have to continue to abide by precautionary measures in place, including two-metre safety distance across all workplaces.
There must also be separate entry and exit points for employees to minimise shared spaces.
The returning employees will have to undergo temperature checks and comply with all other health mandates, including the flexible attendance system to avoid overcrowding. Fingerprint employee-tracking systems will remain halted, with disinfection procedures and awareness campaigns to continue.
The circular emphasises the need to ensure the full readiness of all workplaces for receiving employees in terms of continuing enforcement of all health mandates taken nationwide and the availability of conducive infrastructure enabling those working remotely to perform their assignments in the best possible manner.
Wearing masks and gloves is mandatory so long as employees are in the office, according to the circular.
