Following the UAE President's directive on the federal employee's shifts for the holy month of Ramadan, the Ajman government on Thursday announced remote work on Fridays for its staff.

In a circular, the emirate's human resources department said 70 per cent of employees may work remotely and 30 per cent would be present on site every Friday throughout the holy month.

It also confirmed the official work hours for Ajman's local government entities: 9am to 2.30pm, Monday to Thursday; and 9am to 12pm on Fridays.

The department added that agencies working shifts round the clock should specify the start and end of their staff's schedules, based on their operations.

Ajman is the third emirate to have adopted the remote work policy for Ramadan.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, on Wednesday approved the same rule for the emirate's government staff.
