Companies across the globe offer various types of paid, partially paid, and unpaid leave to employees. The labour laws of most of the countries stipulate that every employee has the right to certain types of leaves, such as sick leave, maternity leave, annual leave etc. But, not many countries grant study leave to employees.
UAE understands the significance of education in the career and overall growth of an employee and it is one among the reasons why the country has decided to include paid study leave in the recently amended labour law.
Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization (MOHRE) has announced the introduction of Federal Decree-Law No. 33 of 2021 that will regulate labor relations and employment practice in UAE. The New UAE Labor Law has come into effect from February 2, 2022 and it will replace the Current UAE Labor Law entirely. Study leave came into effect with the introduction of Federal Decree-Law No. 33 of 2021.
Employees in the UAE can avail a paid leave of 10 days to appear for examinations, provided they are studying in one of the certified educational institutions in the country. Only employees who were part of the company for at least 2 years can apply for study leave.
Employees wishing to further their education shouldn’t be discouraged by employers, as it might curb their enthusiasm and eventually decrease their productivity at work. Ensuring employees are happy and engaged and seeing to it that their needs are taken care of, will encourage them to give their maximum at work.
