Ramadan during Circuit Breaker
Dear HR Professionals
Just wondering if there any special arrangement for Muslim Fasting period?
Our company previously allowed an employee to leave work earlier as they have been fasting for the entire day.
Now, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone has been asked to work from home instead.
So in this case, what do companies do for the Ramadan period?
During fasting, there will be no lunch. In lieu of the lunch hour, they can be allowed to go back one hour earlier.
