Reopening responsibly: 30% of Sharjah government employees to return to work from Sunday
In addition to the employees above 60 years, female employees who have school-going children in the ninth grade or below have been exempted.
Around 30 per cent of the Sharjah government employees will resume work from offices on Sunday, the Sharjah Human Resources Directorate has announced.
However, pregnant women, people with special needs as well as those with chronic ailments and immune deficiencies, according to approved medical reports, are excluded from returning to the workplace depending on the nature of their work.
In addition to the employees above 60 years, female employees who have school-going children in the ninth grade or below have been exempted until the end of the current academic year.
Dr Tariq Sultan bin Khadim, head of the Human Resources Directorate and member of the Sharjah Executive Council, stressed that the decision to allow the return of government employees came following the directions of His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah.
"The move is part of a comprehensive plan for the gradual return to normal life in Sharjah while taking all precautions to prevent the spread of the global epidemic," he added.
The employee attendance percentage may gradually be increased or reduced based on the inputs and reports of government entities to the Human Resources Directorate on a weekly basis.
The directorate had previously given detailed instructions and guidelines for preparing workplaces to receive employees according to the preventive measures and providing a safe and healthy environment for the gradual return of employees and to start their work with confidence.
