Adult residents of the UAE are permitted to work part-time jobs as long as they have a NOC from their current full-time employers. For a work permit that is only good for a maximum of six months, the potential part-time employer must submit a NOC to the Ministry of Human Resources & Emiritization (the “Ministry”). The option of part-time employment with NOC from their sponsor (father or husband) is available to UAE residents over the age of 18 who are sponsored by their father as well as those who are sponsored by their husband. Ministerial Order 31 of 2018 (the “Part-Time Employment Resolution”) governs the provisions relating to part-time employment.

This took effect on March 1st, 2018. According to the aforementioned Ministerial Order, the employee may work fewer than 48 hours per week for a part-time employer. According to Article 3 of the Part-Time Employment Resolution, the following is permitted under a part-time employment contract:

  • To work fewer than eight hours per day or fewer than 48 hours per week for the first company (first part-time employer), provided that the working hours are at least 20 hours per week.
  • To simultaneously work for multiple employers without obtaining permission from either the primary company or any additional employers he is working with.

The Part-Time Employment Resolution’s Article 6 further stipulates that an employee is entitled to all benefits listed in the Federal Law No. 8 of 1980 Regulations on Employment Relations in the UAE. View More
