I am seeking clarification on this matter as stated below:
I first started my job working under the hours of 10-00 am to 6-00pm. Monday - Saturday with 1 hour lunch break each day.
However mid last year after a change of management I was informed verbally that our working hours have been changed by management to 9-00am to 5-00pm Monday - Saturday with 1 hour lunch break each day.
This year my management has the intention to change our timing once again to 8.30am to 5-00pm with 1 hour lunch break each day.
Your company seems to work on rather short hours, only 7 hours per day. What I can say is if the employees are not happy with the intended change from 8.30 to 5.00, they better go and consult the Labour Department or the Industrial Relations Department whether the employer has breached a term and condition of service or not.
