Basic Working Hours

As per Article (65) of the labour law, the maximum number of normal working hours for adult workers is 8 hours a day or 48 a week. Employers are not allowed to exceed the maximum number of working hours even if it is based on an agreement with the worker. Likewise, if a worker works for fewer hours a day, he shall not be asked to work additional hours another day of the week on the pretext that the weekly maximum limit is not exceeded.
