UAE authorities called on employers to ensure workers have flexible hours during bouts of bad weather - and "take into consideration" they may arrive late.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation affirmed that the safety of employees was paramount during "unstable" conditions.

The message comes as the UAE gears up for a week of rain, including a potential threat of floods in some parts of the country.

In a post on its Twitter account, the ministry said it had previously issued a circular in 2018 outlining its strong stance on worker safety during hazardous weather conditions.

The ministry urge employers to provide "employees with safety requirements amid the unstable weather conditions" and "take late arrival into consideration".

Workplaces were also told to improve employee awareness of road safety guidelines and allow them to take advantage of flexible working hours during rough weather, such as heavy rain, high winds and low visibility.

The National Centre of Meteorology said showers of different intensities will affect the entire country over the coming days, up to and including Thursday.

The rain could affect all areas of the country over the period, although showers will mostly be confined to coastal and eastern areas.

"There could be some flash floods in the north and east, not in Abu Dhabi," said a forecaster for the centre.
