Following the UAE government’s decision to change the weekend from Friday to Saturday to Saturday to Sunday, the Sharjah government announced a three-day weekend from Friday to Sunday.
It means Sharjah government workers will only work four days a week, from 7.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m.
When will it be put into effect in Saudi Arabia?
Many expats have been inquiring when a three-day weekend will be introduced in Saudi Arabia since the declaration by the UAE government. Let’s have a look at it.
Employees of the government only
Only government personnel are affected by the Sharjah government’s declaration. As a result, the private sector would continue to function normally.
Even if the Saudi government announces a three-day weekend, private sector employees will be unaffected.
In Saudi Arabia, there is already a two-day weekend.
Employees in the government sector already have a two-day weekend, although most private enterprises only have a one-day weekend.
How do you think organizations who don’t allow employees to leave for one day will react if they are allowed to leave for three days?
Companies in the UAE have a three-day weekend.
Even before the declaration, some companies in the UAE had been providing three-day weekends to their staff.
At the very least, I’m not aware of any such firm.
Saudi Arabia has a unique work environment.
As a result, even if the Saudi government says it, it’s too nice to believe that your firm will announce a three-day weekend for you.
