Five-day break for Bahrain Public Sector employees for Eid-Al-Fitr

Employees in the public sector in Bahrain will be given a five-day holiday to mark Eid Al Fitr.

As per the circular issued by the Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the ministries, departments and public institutions in the Kingdom will be given a holiday on the first three days of the religious occasion marking the end of Ramadan.
Friday and Saturday are likely holidays, as Eid is expected to begin on Friday and the employees are given two days in lieu, which would extend their holiday to five days.
Most private sector companies too will give their staff three to four days off to celebrate Eid.

The public sector regulations permit the staff to benefit from longer holidays than
employees in the private sector. Apart from a five-day working week, and shorter hours of work and lesser load, employees also enjoy better job stability and security.
Owing to such perks, public sector has always been more attractive to job seekers than private sector, which in turn, has placed additional pressure on the government to find suitable job opportunities for them.

Bahrain has remained committed in ensuring that the private sector plays an active role in driving the development of the Kingdom. The government will continue to implement new and better services to support the private sector and serve the interests of its nationals, said Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
