I'm working for security company. My company force me to work for six days, more than 12 hours each day. As I know the company got no rights to force us work ot involuntarily. Is it possible to sue the company for forcing us work against our will?

    You cannot work more than 48 hours per week. Where an employee works 12 hour shifts, they should average 44 hours in a continuous 3-week period (unless you are not a shift worker and you have given your consent in writing for the special arrangement required). Furthermore, in a single month, overtime (OT) should not exceed 72 hours. The company is obliged to apply to the Ministry of Manpower for special permission to exceed 72 hours of OT a month. Please contact the Ministry of Manpower for further clarification.
