Midnight to Midnight is 24 hrs, Midnight is the 12 hour at night to the next 12 hour at night =24 hours 1 day not 2 Someone on shift work may help you out on the rest.What does it mean midnight to midnight? Is it consider 2 day off, from 1st midnight to 2nd midnight?
From the above case, I dont think Thursday Off consider midnight to midnight, because he need to report to work at Thursday midnight 12pm w/o proper rest but company take thursday night is next working day, meaning Friday 1st mid night shift. Any HR personnel or shift worker give some comments here?ksl wrote:Midnight to Midnight is 24 hrs, Midnight is the 12 hour at night to the next 12 hour at night =24 hours 1 day not 2 Someone on shift work may help you out on the rest.What does it mean midnight to midnight?

Mad Scientist. 1st thks for your comments. Yup, an employee can be require to work for up to 12hours a day but not more thanl 72hrs overtime a month on his working days. But now I'm not understand is should an employee entitle of a rest day or off day when he transfer from day work to shift work as I mentioned above:Mad Scientist wrote:This is from MOM
Maximum working hours
An employee is not allowed to work for more than 12 hours within a day except in the following circumstances:
1. Accident or threat of accident;
2. Work that is essential to:
1. the life of the community;
2. national defence; or
3. Urgent work to be done to machinery or plant; or
4. An interruption of work which was impossible to foresee.
An employee can be required to work up to 12 hours a day if the employee gives his consent in writing, after the provisions of Sections 38 and 40 of the Employment Act have been clearly explained to him. He must be informed of the daily working hours, the number of working days in each week and the weekly rest day.
Employers that require their employees to work more than 12 hours (maximum 14 hours) a day are required under section 40 of the Employment Act, to apply for overtime exemption from the Ministry of Manpower. (Download the application form for overtime exemption for work more than 12 hours a day)

So which part are you not understanding.
Sundaymorningstaple, thks for your suggestion, I just forward my query to MOM, hope to hear from they soon.sundaymorningstaple wrote:Did you try calling MOM? they are really the ones for such a technical answer that has a better chance of being 100% right. After all, it their laws. That way you won't go off half-cocked based on somebody's answer here that is still subject to interpretation .
Mad Scientist, I would like to add/amend some of your comments mentioned above, please do advice me if my understanding is incorrect.Mad Scientist wrote:An employee covered by Part IV of the Employment Act is entitled to a rest day comprising one whole day (midnight to midnight) every week.
The rest day can be on a Sunday or any other day. The employer should determine the rest day and inform the employee before the beginning of each month. It is not a paid day.
Employer cannot compel employees to work on rest day unless under very exceptional circumstances.
The longest allowable interval between two rest days is 12 days. This can occur where in one week, the rest day is given on Monday, which is at the beginning of the working week. In the following week, the rest day is on Sunday, which is at the end of next working week. This will enable an employee to take two rest days at a stretch and allow an employer greater flexibility in the rostering of rest days.
For a shift worker, the rest day can be a continuous period of 30 hours. A 30-hour rest period that commences before 6pm on a Sunday will be considered as one rest day within the week, even though the 30-hour period will extend into the next week, i.e. on Monday
The above is from MOM . Your question is very interesting and please do advise us on the outcome from MOM. I do understand where you are coming from and I do not have an answer for you.
This is my understanding from what you have wrote. The max. working hour per week is 44 hrs. The max OT is 72 hours per month.
The min. rest period between one shift to another is 12 hours from what I understand here. I think there is no Off Day rather it is considered as Rest Day as it is not a paid day. I maybe wrong here
But if there is written consent from employee then it is all good
It also depends if you are on hourly rate. monthly rate, executive role or otherwise. You have to see what your contract says.
My ex staff used to hit more than 72 hours a month on OT. No one complains. We used to have 3 days works One day off and 4 days work two days off on 12 hours shift . No one came back to us as they are paid for their work. Hmm... interesting topic
