<UAE Labour Law> Concerning Annual Leave
The article 75 of UAE Labour Law says;
The worker shall be entitled during every year of service an annual leave of no less than the following periods:
a- Two days for each month should the period of service of the worker be of six months at least and a year at most.
b- Thirty days for each year should the period of service of the worker exceed one year.
Should the service of the worker be terminated, the worker shall be entitled to an annual leave for the fractions of the last year.
Also, the article 8 of UAE Labour Law says;
The calculation of the periods and dates referred to herein shall be made according to the Gregorian calendar. In the implementation hereof, a calendar year shall be deemed as 365 days, and the month as 30 days, unless the employment contract stipulates otherwise.
Therefore, workers who have worked for more than one year can use 30 days of annual leave per year, and the days are calculated based on the Gregorian calendar, unless the employment contract specifies that they are based on working days.
