UAE Cabinet grants paid leaves to exceptional cases of federal government employees

This move is part of a series of precautionary measures and procedures taken by the UAE Government to get the COVID-19 pandemic under control. The resolution stipulates that married employees of the Federal Government may take fully paid leave to take care of their children below the age of 16.

The age condition shall not apply to people of determination, as well as in cases where a spouse is subject to self-isolation or quarantine that requires no contact with family members, upon a decision from the Ministry of Health and Prevention. The resolution also applies to employees whose spouses work in vital health-related occupations, such as doctors, nurses, paramedics and other medical jobs that require exposure to infected people, as well as employees of quarantine centers, throughout the emergency period witnessed by the country.

Pursuant to the resolution, the relevant ministry or federal authority may ask employees to hold essential technical occupations to work remotely instead of taking leave. The resolution was issued in line with the UAE Government’s keenness to support employees and provide them with a safe and healthy working environment, as well as to protect the health and safety of government employees and their families, during the current crisis that requires greater efforts, additional working hours, and in some cases, exposure to infected people.
