Ban on working in open areas in Summer

Monday, May 27, 2019

The Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) said the authority is preparing to implement the decision to ban working in open areas from June 1 to August 31 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm keeping in mind the safety of workers.

According to the provisions of the private sector Labor Law No. 6/2010 and in compliance with international conventions employers are forbidden from making their workers work in open areas from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm each year because of the intense summer heat.

PAM has urged employers to abide by the provisions of this decision in order to avoid being held legally accountable.

The PAM also said teams of inspectors will be active to ensure the decision is being implemented.
