Employment Rights Act 2008


It has been noted that, from the current situation, two shift per day is required for the cutting,
painting and powder operations and the others operations involved only one shift per day
however there is an overtime work of 4-5 times per week and at times required to stay overnight
to complete the job. Base on section 14(1), workers are required to work only 8 hrs per day and
if the workers stay for overtime or overnight work then they have to start their after 11 hrs as
mentioned in section 14(7) from the Employment Rights Act. It is also states, in section 16(1) (b)
and 16 (2) that the employer have to give a priority of 24 hours notice to his employees to
perform extra-time task and the workers have the right to refuse to do so nevertheless only there
is an employment contract in which it mentioned that the workers have to work the minimum
extra-time task. The Human Resource Department has to make sure that the entry and the leaving
time of the work is recorded by the supervisor in the correct registry for appropriate
remuneration of additional operating hours. This practice will make sure that the workload is not

exceeded for any employee and allocation of a day rest is given; therefore abiding by the
legislation.
