UAE Work Week Structure
Private sector works 45 hours per week, while federal entities work 35 hours.
There is no unified body that sets the parameter for the number of hours a person works in a week.
Each country sets its own structure, based on the culture, the economy and the ruling set forth by the federal labor law.
In the UAE, it is standard practice for the private sector to work 45 hours per week, while federal entities work 35 hours weekly.
The US, Canada, Europe and Japan practice an average of 40 working hours a week, while France records the lowest work week at 30 hours.
