Dear All,
I have recently joined as HR Executive in a IT firm having around 30 + employees.
I have query regarding working hours in my organisation. I have gone through the threads in past but my query are as below:
We have working hours of 9 hrs 9.00 to 6.00 pm (Monday to Saturday)without overtime pay and only Sunday is a holiday.
Working hours in a factory as per laws prescribed in Factories Act, 1948 in a week are 48 hrs not more than that.
Can it be reduced,by conveying it to the Director or its complete a employers decision.
Kindly help me out with the same.
Thanks in Advance.

Your organisation may not covere under Factories. You have to follow Shops & Estt. Act., as there is no manufacturing activity.

Working hours need to be restricted to 48 hours a week and not more than 9 hours a day.
It is essential to adhere to working hours as per local state and establishment act.
So kindly check up the local enactment and fix working hours.

Dear Ms.Priya,
As per standard working hours either in Factories or any establishments it is 48 hours in a week, i.e, 8 hours x 6 days = 48 hours.
In your establishment it is 9 to 6, which is inclusive of intervals and lunch. Please check, it could be 8 hours excluding intervals of lunch etc.,.
