Number of days in a month as per UAE Labour Law?

How many days are considered in a month as per UAE Labour Law?

Many have expressed their confusion as to how many days is considered a month as per UAE Labor Law.

Article 8 of the UAE Labour Law clearly mentions the following: “Dates and periods stipulated herein shall be construed according to the Gregorian Calendar. In the applications of the provisions of this Law, a calendar year is 365 days and month is 30 days unless stated otherwise in the employment contract.”

So it is clear that a month is considered as 30 days and a year is 365 days.

This may be useful in calculating gratuity, leave salary eligibility, advance salary payments etc.
