AJMAN, May 28, 2020 (WAM) – Thirty percent of Ajman’s government employees will return to work as of Sunday, May 31, 2020, according to a circular from Ajman’s human resources department. More and more employees will gradually return to work as the health crisis subsides.
The circular, which follows on from the President of the Executive Council’s 2020 resolution 7 concerning the crisis management policy of Ajman’s government, exempts certain categories of employees. These include pregnant women, determined people, people with compromised immunity and chronic diseases and those over 60 years of age.
Also excluded are employees caring for children aged 9 and under and specific children whose conditions require constant care. Employees in shared accommodation with people most exposed to health risks and in permanent contact with them are also excluded.
Those affected by the decision must continue to adhere to the precautionary measures in place, including a two-meter safety distance at all workplaces. There should also be separate entry and exit points for employees to minimize shared spaces. Returning employees will need to undergo temperature checks and comply with all other health mandates, including the flexible attendance system to avoid overcrowding. Employee fingerprint tracking systems will remain inactive, with disinfection procedures and awareness campaigns continuing.
The circular emphasizes the full preparation of all workplaces for the reception of employees in terms of the continued application of all health mandates taken at the national level and the availability of suitable infrastructure allowing those who work remotely to carry out their missions in the best possible way.
Wearing a mask and gloves is mandatory while employees are on duty, according to the circular.
