The private sector in the Emirates will have three days off to celebrate Eid al-Adha, from November 26 to 28, and one day off for National Day, on December 2, the official news agency WAM reported on Thursday, citing an announcement by the Ministry of Labor.
Since the Eid al-Adha holiday falls on a weekend for the private sector, some companies are allowing their staff to take the following Sunday and Monday off.
