HR, IR, Law, disc. matters

Dear all, I was stating the general principles regarding shift working since this keeps on appearing. Further to clarify, the Section 28 of the BOCW Act 1996 empowers the appropriate Government to frame rules regarding the hours of work and rest intervals to be provided. Rule 234(2) of the Central Rules lays down similar provision like the Section 55 of the Factories Act, stating therein that the the building worker cannot be employed to work continously for more than five hours unless he had an interval of rest of not less than half an hour. Hope the above position makes it clear.

Often, there are 9 working hour per day that included the lunch break but if your daily working hours are 8 then the lunch break will not be included in that.

on your opininon and practice we all try to give justification that break hours can be excluded from 48hrs of work in a week.
it is required to prove the same by compiling the act. can any one give section or rule refering the break hrs clarification which seperate break hrs from 48 hrs
