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?

Best Regards,





Dear Jill

During fasting, there will be no lunch. In lieu of the lunch hour, they can be allowed to go back one hour earlier.
