The Labour Law in the UAE determines the method of calculating annual leave for part-time workers

The United Arab Emirates' Labour Law governs both the method of calculating annual leave for part-time employees and the method of calculating end-of-service rewards.

According to Article 29(2) of the Employment Law and Article 18 of Cabinet Resolution No. 1 of 2022, a part-time worker is entitled to annual leave based on the number of hours he actually works for his employer. In the case of part-time employment, the total number of working hours in a year and the number of days converted into days determine an employee's annual leave.

A minimum of five working days per year is required for annual leave, and a fraction of a day is considered to be a full day when calculating leave entitlements, according to the following: The duration of the annual leave shall be determined based on the total working hours after converting them into working days, divided by the number of working days in the year, multiplied by the legally prescribed leaves, with a minimum of five working days per year for annual leave.

1. The ratio of the working hours performed by an employee under a part-time contract must be equivalent to the working hours performed by the employee under a full-time contract.

2. When it comes to the real working hours, there should be no more than eight hours of work total for each day.

3. The number of hours that an employee is required to work in accordance with a part-time contract must be equivalent to the total number of hours that have been contracted.

4. The percentage will be calculated by dividing the number of working hours under the employee's part-time contract per year by the number of working hours under the full-time contract per year, and then multiplying the result by 100. This will be the mathematical equation.

One of the factors that impacts how yearly leave is computed for part-time workers in the United Arab Emirates is the Labour Law.

The UAE determines the method of calculating the end-of-service benefits to employees

This is in accordance with Article 52 of the Employment Law read with Article 30 of Cabinet Resolution No. 1 of 2022, which states, “Subject to the provisions of Article (52) of the Decree-Law, the end of service benefits due to workers working in part-time or job-sharing types and not on a full-time basis shall be calculated pursuant to the following mechanism:

1. The number of working hours that are specified in the employment contract for each year should be divided in order to determine the end-of-service benefit. After that, this percentage should be multiplied by the amount of the end-of-service benefit that is due for the full-time employment contract.

2. The end-of-service benefit is not applicable in the case of temporary employment if the term of the employment is shorter than one year.
