Sharjah’s government has announced that a four-day workweek will be implemented beginning next year.
The Sharjah Executive Council approved the decision in accordance with the directives of His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah.
Instead of the newly implemented 4.5-day workweek in six other emirates, Sharjah will begin the weekend on Friday.
Beginning January 1, the emirate will have a four-day workweek and a three-day weekend.
Monday through Thursday will be the four working days, with hours ranging from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
