 What should be the maximum working hours for a supervisor (non- unionised) of a Govt. of India undertaking company posted at a construction site.? Is there any rule that restricts the total working hours in a week ? Is compensatory leave is enough in liu of work on holidays or working beyond working hours?

Maximum working hours shall not exceed 9 hours a day.  Compensation leave is allowed in case of work during holidays. For work beyond working hours overtime wages are payable.

Hi legal eagles,

As per the provisions of the Factories Act,1948, the maximum working hours in a day cannot exceed 9 hours and total working hours in a week should not exceed 48 hours. The Law allows payment of over time wages if an employee put up extra/over time work in a Factory/Industry.

 yes I know that the max. working hour per day is 9 hrs (including 1 hr break). But, I, really, wanted to know that what is the max hours of work can an employee give(including the overtimes). and if working at a construction site makes any difference. As I know, in Germany there is a bar of sixty hours per week (including overtimes) for any one.

Can any employer force an employee to work for 12 hrs per day (paying the due overtimes) for six days in a week?
