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.
