Re: Working Hours

I'm a bit confused to working hour. Need your expertise to advise further.
i noticed that total working hour for a week cannot exceed 48 hrs.
These 48 working hour mean exclusive lunch break hours, am i right? ( because is working hours as stated at employment act)
As refer to below time table, do we breach the employment act under section 60A.
i did verify this issue with labour officer which the 48 hours are exclusive lunch break hours.

And we have new working hours as follow:-

5days work
Monday to Friday 8.00am to 6.00pm
Lunch Break 12.30pm to 1.30pm

From the above mentioned total working hour for a week are 45 hrs and daily working hours are 9 hrs. Is this working table adoptable?

Thank you in advance.

I have same confusion as Ong did, I have working hours as below:

working day: mon-sun
(staff are not allowed to go out for lunch, tapao only)
mon-fri - 9am to 6pm
saturday - 9am to 3pm
sun - 9am to 1pm (no lunch time)

- Off day - once a month for permanent staff only.
- Annual leave not given by the employer, any leave taken (eg mc) will be deduct in salary.
- NO double pay for working on public holiday.

Are these accepted by labour law?
