Are Women allowed to work at night in UAE.
Please all mention the time a woman is supposed to work in UAE, in case they are allowed to work.
I recently came to Dubai and got employed by a rental car company but since I finished my training, I have been working a night shift, 12hrs in Dubai Airport terminal one departure brunch.
The company pays me over time but is this legal for a woman to work 12hours in the night 6 pm to 6 pm?

As per the UAE  labour law article  (27), Women are not allowed to work at night. however, the word “night” in the law means working 12hours consecutively from period od 10 p.m to 7 am.
However, there some cases that exempt women to work at night in UAE per the law article (28).

  • Women working in  administrative and technical position  
  • Women Working in health services
  • Unforeseeable circumstances that prevent someone from fulfilling a contract
  • Other Jobs that require women to work at night in UAE may seek permission from by the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs.
