Coronavirus: Are you on unpaid leave? Here’s how you can work part-time
Are you worried about how you can supplement your income if you are facing a salary cut or are on an unpaid leave?
In the UAE, you can work part-time based on the provisions in the UAE Labour Law.
You can work part-time after getting the work permit from Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE).
You can work with another company on a part-time basis for less than eight hours per day. If you are on a family visa, you would need an NOC from your sponsor.
Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation also issued a decree for establishments who were affected by the precautionary measures related to COVID-19.
You can register to work part-time on careers.mohre.gov.ae Establishments can also register with the information of their employees, if they have surplus workforce.
Several websites within the UAE and internationally also allow professionals to provide their services as freelancers
