Oman: Flexible Working System Clarified

Atheer, 12 May 2022: Oman’s Labour Ministry has issued Oman Circular No. 5/2022 regarding the flexible working system in units in the State’s administrative apparatus which apply the Civil Service Law and its Implementing Regulations.

The Circular has been issued to implement the Sultan’s directives to apply the flexible working system in these units.

Employees must work seven consecutive hours a day.

The working hours will be between 7.30am and 4.30pm, provided they are calculated from the time they come to work until they leave.

Units which provide direct services to the public will announce the working hours allocated for providing these services, so the total of those hours will not be less than seven hours a day.

Each unit, together with its employees, manages and organises their daily working hours in a way which does not affect the completion of their work and tasks and the provision of services to the public and beneficiaries, or their connection to the dates of meetings, seminars, workshops or training programmes scheduled for them.

The flexible working system will be implemented from the day after the Circular was issued. For full story, click here.
