An employee's time off for personal reasons like illness, family emergencies, or appointments is known as personal leave. It is distinct from sick or annual leave and may be paid or unpaid, depending on the policy of the employer. According to the UAE Labour Law, employees in the UAE are entitled to personal leave. The policy of the company may have a different number of days for personal leave each year, but it typically ranges from three to five days. A doctor's note or proof of an appointment may be required by employers as evidence of the need for personal leave.
