After ten days since announcing the plan of flexible working hours in most government agencies, the Ministry of Communications decided to start implementing the decision, starting Sunday, reports Al-Qabas daily. According to the decision, the working hours start at 9:45 am and the time of departure is 3:15 pm, indicating that flexible working hours include all employees except those working in shifts.
The decision stipulates each employee must put in four and a half hours of work. In this regard, sources told the daily that the Ministry, throughout the past period, was confused about the flexible working hours mechanism and had sent a letter to the Civil Service Commission on March 29 regarding the official working hours during the month of Ramadan, inviting it to report on the possibility of adopting the flexible working hours system. The sources indicated that the flexible working hours allowed government agencies to choose more than one of the scheduled work times.
