The maximum number of working hours for the adult employees, defined by the UAE Labour Law is Eight Hours per day, only during Ramadan where two hours are reduced as per LAW. Employees are provided with relaxation throughout the month of Ramadan with rest hours of the work. Even the Labour Law UAE advises that the salary for the overtime should not be exceeded two hours per day. It means if you are willing to pay the overtime amount very handsomely, then it does not allow you to keep a worker for an excessive number of working hours. Whatever the Salary, Wage or Overtime is decided between two parties should be paid at the right time. Salary is paid through WPS around 27-28 of every month and there is a fine for the employer who intentionally delays while paying salaries to employees.
