Re: change of total working hours


We have been having 5 days work week (830-530)in the company all these years. Now with the economic issue the management wants to make a compulsory of 48 hrs per week for all staff. The staff is given a choice to do additional hrs on the weekdays or come on saturday to cover this.

What is your opinion on this?

Your company was quite generous in the beginning by letting staff to work only 40 hours per week. There will be some resistance if it wanted to extend the hours. I think it is better to work a bit longer for 5 days rather rather than coming to work on Saturdays. Try to talk it over and you can also get the views from the Labour Office or the IR Department.

Taking 2 hours leave is it consider half day leave?

A lot of companies do that. Some even stricter than that.
