DGHR Director General Abdulla Ali bin Zayed Al Falasi also said that they want to ensure the workers’ safety, reduce traffic in the morning, as well as decrease attendance delays and leave permissions.

The circular, which was issued on August 9, stated that the department will allow employees to work under flexible hours from 6:30 AM until 8:30 AM provided that they complete the number of official working hours. Directives have also been given to human resources departments of government entities in order to amend the regulations involving attendance and departure hours.

Employees exempted from the circular, however, include those whose work requires regular communication with the public as well as those working on shift basis.
