Midday Break

Seeing the benefit of the 12:30-3PM break to the labourers, The Ministry of Labour have implemented the midday break commencing 1 July 2008.

It was not easy to implement this law. Although not reported, a few companies tried to bend the law and still have their labourers under the scorching heat.

Due to this, the UAE officials decided to impose a threat on companies violating this rule.

On its third year, this law is indeed a 'welcome break' for the labourers who have to bear the heat so that they can spend enough money to their home countries.

I think this is a good idea.

Even if we want to work 24/7, we cannot do that most especially if we feel uncomfortable in our working area.

I commend the UAE officials for being strict in imposing this law to the companies.

Well done! :)
