Employees who work non-shift typically work eight-hour days and up to 44 hours per week. Workers on shifts should not work more than 44 hours per week on average over three consecutive weeks, and workdays should not exceed 12 hours. In no circumstance may a shift worker work more than 12 hours per day. All hours worked in excess of those specified in the employment contract constitute overtime.
Anything beyond this time limit is considered overtime and is compensated at 150 percent of standard pay. An employee shall not be permitted to work more than 72 hours of overtime per month.
An employee may not work more than 12 hours per day unless the job is vital to life or security, critical to the business, or requires extended interruption.
