Working hours in Ramadan in Saudi Arabia are so relaxed that you don’t feel like you’re working, allowing you to devote more time to prayer.
Saudi Arabian working hours during Ramadan
Ramadan working hours for Muslim employees are 6 hours per day or 36 hours per week, according to Article 98 of Saudi Labor Law.
Non-Muslim employees work 8 hours per day or 48 hours per week.
It means that people who have two off days per week will have a maximum of 30 hours per week during Ramadan.
Although non-Muslims are required to work for 8 hours each day during Ramadan, most companies limit all Muslims and non-Muslim workers to 6 hours per day.
During Ramadan, there is a lot of extra time
During the month of Ramadan, if your employer asks you to work longer than the permissible working hours in Saudi Arabia, you are entitled to overtime pay at the amount set out in Saudi Labor Law. Recommended: Saudi Arabia’s Working Hours and Overtime Calculation
Non-Muslim workers are entitled to overtime for time worked after 8 hours because they are legally compelled to labor for 8 hours a day.
During Ramadan, when should banks and the government be open?
The majority of government offices and banks are open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. However, it’s a great thing to double-check the office’s hours before going.
- 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the government sector.
- 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the banking sector.
- Private Sector: Timings differ depending on the company.
- Labor Works from Isha to Suhoor in the construction sector.
