2. Morning shift: 9.30 am to 5.30 pm
3. Afternoon shift: 2.30 pm to 10.30 pm

You can give guidance from the section in the Employment Act quoted below:

"Shift work

60C. (1) Notwithstanding paragraphs 60A(1)(b), (c) and (d), but subject to paragraph (1)(a) thereof, an employee who is engaged under his contract of service in shift work may be required by his employer to work more than eight hours in any one day or more than forty-eight hours in any one week but the average number of hours worked over any period of three weeks, or over any period exceeding three weeks as may be approved by the Director General, shall not exceed forty-eight per week."
