Hi all,

My company is having continues chemical process plant. Employees are getting weekly off regularly as per factories act. We have arranged 2 or 3 days shift schedule. Employees are comfortable with this 2 or 3 days shift schedule.

Mon/Tue- 1st shift - 6 to 2
Wed/Thu- 2nd Shift - 2 to 10
Fri/Sat- 3rd Shift -10 to 7
Sun- W/off

My query is “whether this is a correct practice OR we need to change it to 6 days shift schedule?”

I need your legal opinion.

That’s legally Ok, but we can change on weekly pattern for biological adjustements. c shift seems to 10 to 6, Sunday also need to operate for chemical process plant. Regards, satya

Dear Satya,
Thanks for yr response and yes u r right, it is 10- to 6. But one of Factory Insp asked, this is not correct. As he said there should be 24 hrs rest before enter in to new shift. I wasnt some legal stand/ opinion. our employee also have no objection on this.
In case we have to adopt as FI said, do we need to put a notice of change for 21 days under ID act. Please advise.
