Hi I want to know what is the prescribed working hours for women according to law & under which section.Does it applies to private sector also. Thanks Pooja
Dear Pooja
There is no prescribed working hours for women workers. Even SC allows "the women workers can work during night shift also" but Employer can provide adequte safety/protection for women workers.

There is a prescribed working hours for women in Factories ACT, but its also mentioned that if a woman worker extends her working hours the employer needs to provide security measures ( Even night shifts).
how can we identify the manpower shortage in the organisation please give me briefly information kalyani-HR vidyuth control systems private limited.
Dear Kalyani,
Put your query on separate/ identical thread as this thread relates to 'working hours for women'.
With Regards,

There is no specific working hours prescribed by SC for Women employees. As far as night shift’s are concerned they are asked to fill/ compile a 'voluntary declaration of night shift'.
Dear Pooja,
According to the Factory Act , Working hours for women is also same as working hours for men but the time period during which the women workers are allowed : 6 A.M. to 7 P.M. but in special condtions they can be exempted..... for this the factory has to take prior permission from appropriate government but in this case also no female worker is allowed to do work during 10.00 P.M. to 5.00 A.M.

As per shop & establishment act, there is any specific timing for women workers. If there any notification for timing kindly update the same.
