I am working in an IT company in Chennai and have issues with the working hours. The company has displayed (on the notice board) the TN Labour Act which clearly status the normal working hours should not exceed 9 hrs a day and beyond that it will be considered as overtime and proper compensation has to be done for the same.
But the company requires us to work 9.5 hrs a day mandatory. We are asked to stick to this policy, though it is hard to find any policy document stating that the working hours to be 9.5
Is there anything that we can do about it? Is IT Cos an exception? Appreciate if you could provide clear & detailed advise as I have intentions of taking legal action if possible.
