Hello,

From what I know the usual working hours is 48 hours in a week. but while I was browsing over the labor code, it says there that the regular working hours is at 40 hours, 8 hours per day and anything in excess is paid as overtime. Am I missing out something? For some time, I have been implementing the 48 working hours. Please advise. Thank you

overtime is looked at on a daily, not weekly basis. so there is OT if work goes beyond 8 hours in a day. the weekly total is irrelevant.

Hi Atty,

What if the company is not paying overtime in a daily basis for hours worked in excess of 8 hours? In a contract signed by a friend of mine, he is being required to work a 48 hour working week. That's 9 hours for 4 days and 8 hours on the day before his off. His other colleagues from another department are working a regular 8 hour shift, however that will be for 6 days straight without overtime pay on the 6th day.

Does the company have any legal capability to make their employees work such lengthy working hours?

Looking forward to your expeditious response.

Thanks.

With much respect,

Blade

9 hours x 4 days = 36 hours
8 hours x 1 day = 8 hours

Total = 44 hours.

If you mention 9 hours x 4 days, does this exclude their lunch break?

Check the working hours of the company. There are companies with 6 day work weeks, others like banks at 5-day weeks, others still at 5.5 days. As long as they are 8-hour workdays.

Sometimes there may be no overtime if there are flexible work schedules also.
