The recommendation is applicable to all government workers in Dubai, with the exception of those whose jobs require them to be physically present at their place of employment.
Additionally, on February 13, the educational administration of the UAE said that remote learning would be maintained in all government schools all around the country.
This modification was notified by the Emirates Education Foundation, which took into consideration the unstable weather circumstances that have been occurring in the country.
The purpose of the decision is to ensure that both the students and the faculty remain secure.
Remote work for workers in the private sector
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) private sector enterprises have been requested to maintain their flexible work schedules on February 13, as the rains continue to fall across the country.
Monday was the day when the statement was made by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization in the United Arab Emirates (Mohre).
It was stated in a statement by the Ministry that "necessary measures need to be taken by companies to ensure that outdoor work, if necessary to resume, complies with the occupational health and safety requirements."
It is also the responsibility of businesses to safeguard the health and safety of their employees while they are traveling to and from outside work places.
