A top official from the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources of the UAE government has announced the dates for the upcoming Western New Year 2015 non-working public holidays in the UAE.

As per the aforementioned announcement, both the UAE public sector and the UAE private sectors would be on public holidays on Thursday, January 1, 2015, to Saturday, January 3, 2015, and that "work will resume on Sunday January 4".

No additional non-working public holiday was declared as per item No. 6 of Article 100 of the Ministerial Council decision No. 13 for the year 2012 on the regulations of the Federal Law No. 11 of 2008 on Human Resources of the Federal Government and its amendments.

As was the case last year (2013-12-25), but contrary to preceding years (2012-12-18, 2012-11-27 and 2012-11-22), this year, the private sector of the UAE gets the same number of public holidays than the public sector for the Western New Year non-working public holidays in the UAE.
