The five-day Eid Al Fitr holiday for the public sector will begin from Sunday, August 28. The announcement, made by the Ministry of Labour yesterday, noted that all public sector employees will be given the week off and return to work on Sunday, September 4. The Minister of Labour, Saqr Ghobash, also released a decree stating that the first and second day of the month of Shawwal – which marks the start of Eid Al Fitr – will be a paid holiday for all private sector employees. The start of Shawwal is dependent on the sighting of the moon, but it is widely expected that private sector employees will receive Wednesday, August 31 and Thursday, September 1 as holiday.
