Federal government considering to abolish Saturday off of federal employees

ISLAMABAD: The federal government is contemplating a controversial proposal to abolish Saturday as a day off for federal government employees. The federal government has sought recommendations on the matter, with a final decision expected soon. If implemented, the change would come into effect on July 1, 2024.

Currently, most federal government departments observe two days off per week. However, the proposed move would reduce this to one day off, likely sparking opposition from government employees. This development comes as no surprise, as a similar proposal was floated during Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s previous term but was met with widespread resistance and ultimately shelved.

The potential move has sparked concerns among government employees, who are expected to voice their opposition to the proposal. Many argue that the extra day off is essential for their work-life balance and personal well-being. Others point out that the change would disproportionately affect those with family commitments or religious obligations on Saturdays.

While the government has yet to make a final decision, the proposal has already generated significant debate and controversy. As the government weighs the pros and cons, it remains to be seen whether it will push forward with the change or heed the concerns of its employees. One thing is certain, however: the decision will have far-reaching implications for the country’s federal workforce.
