Public Servants to Resume Regular Office Hours Effective Today

Ministry of Education

The shortened workweek which most public servants have been working since last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, has effectively come to an end.


A circular issued by the Chief Establishment Officer is advising all public servants to report for normal duties from tomorrow, Tuesday May 25.


The circular, headed; Resumption of regular work operation/ working hours for all public offices/agencies, said the decision for the return to preCOVID-19 hours was made by the Cabinet.


It is also advising that all permanent secretaries and heads of department are to ensure that all safety and health protocols are to be strictly enforced at each work station.


The decision affects thousands of public sector workers who have been working on shift-systems or working staggered hours for approximately a year when the government took stern action to curb the spreads of the corona virus.


Despite working for half of their regular hours for more than a year, all public servants have received their full salaries during this time.
