Working hours for all private-sector employees in the UAE will be reduced by two hours during Ramadan.

That's according to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, which made the announcement on their official social media channels early Saturday.

Last week, the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources announced revised work timings for the public sector workers. 

Most of the private sector employees have already been asked to work from home, as per the guidelines introduced to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Companies in Dubai have been asked to reduce staff at the offices to 30 per cent or less.
