Please let me know what is the legal maximum working hours per week for front office executives in hotels.
Previously I was working in an IT company where we had 5 days working and 9 hours per day.
I understand as and when required, people do work for extra hours in every industry, but in my current org (hotel industry), front office executives work for 10 hrs a day for 5 days and 12 hours for the 6th day which makes a total of 62 hrs per week. Of course you have 1 hour for lunch every day, but no-one really takes 1 hour. I know many hotels would practice this, but i want to know legally, is it same as other indutry (45 hours per week)?
