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.
