Re: Force to work until Midnight and Weekends without OT
I'm currently working with an System Integrator Company in Damansara with 400+ total number of employees. Since most of the projects' deadline are getting nearer and nearer, the CEO/Owner forced all of his employee to put extra effort and work until midnight and during weekends.
As usual, some of the senior employees are reluctant to do it so he asked all the top management to have meetings, trainings and discussion at late nights. Since the meetings and training are mandatory, thus it forces us to stay back. If we don't attend, we are given "THE LOOK" (you know - you've been blacklisted and you will not get any bonus) and submit a show cause letter explaining your absentism.
Also there has no means of paying OT to all! Our working hours as stated in my contract are from 8.30am - 5.30pm but now with the pressure from the CEO it's becoming like 8.30am-12midnight plus weekends. Please advise on the strategy to confront the CEO/Owner.
