Laborers working on the Dubai Metro’s Red Line may be exempt from the UAE’s midday work ban during summer, reports Arabian Business. Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has requested the Ministry of Labor for an exemption from the ban in order to stick to its September 9 deadline.

The midday work ban was enforced on July 1, and gives laborers who work under the sun a two and a half hour break, from 12.30pm to 3pm.
