Labor Code provides that the normal hours of work or any employee shall not more than 8 hours a day. As a rule, the rendering of work beyond 8 hrs is voluntary . But, there are instances when an employer may require his employees to perform overtime work—enumerated in the Labor Code. Explain, in a friendly tone,that you cannot render OT due lack of rest etc. Good luck.
