As per Article 70 of the UAE Labor Law, Friday is an official weekly rest. However, the employer may request the employee to work on a Friday provided they are given a substituted day off or overtime. Moreover, Article 71 provides that the worker may not be requested to work for more than two consecutive Fridays with the exception of the day workers. Also, it is the employer’s responsibility as per Article 73 to communicate to the employees about the schedule of their weekly rest.
