Employee mothers and fathers in the United Arab Emirates are eligible for additional paid leave from their employers.

UAE companies provide additional paid leave to the mothers and fathers.

UAE companies provide more parent-friendly policies, including 30-day paternity leave and additional days off for in vitro fertilization.

Providing new parents with additional time to bond with their babies and heal completely would allow employees to return to work with a renewed sense of passion and dedication after they have returned.

Types of parental leave in the UAE.

The United Arab Emirates offers a variety of parental leave options.

Companies in the United Arab Emirates are rapidly reevaluating the requirements of young parents and adjusting their policies to accommodate these needs. Companies are going above and beyond to ensure the health and happiness of their employees, as well as to "simply do the right thing." This includes providing paternity leave that lasts for an entire month, as well as allowing days off for in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures and stillbirths.

Many of these policies are very important to James Michael Lafferty, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Fine Hygienic Holding. My wife's miscarriage left us in a state of shock. Our organization offered a leave of absence to employees who had suffered a miscarriage or a stillbirth in the previous year.

Since the policy was first implemented, not more than one or two workers have taken advantage of the leave. In addition, the company provides paid maternity leave for a period of four months, as well as menstrual leave for one day per month, and it also provides paid leave for individuals who require it for in vitro fertilization treatment.

The company also provides employees with annual vacation time.

At the start of this month, the Chalhoub group decided to increase the amount of paternity leave they offer to thirty calendar days for team members who have been with the company for at least one year. We wanted to make sure that fathers across our organization have abundant opportunities to be present with their babies and provide essential support to their families during this crucial stage in their lives, said Wassim Eid, President of People & Culture at the organization. "We wanted to make sure that fathers have ample opportunities to be present with their newborns."

All fathers within the organization can implement the policy within the first six months after a child's birth. Depending on the father's preference, he can implement it all at once or spread it out over the first six months of the child's life.
