Working Hours

I’m working in a call centre. I need some advice on the working hours.

Shift: 9AM - 9PM

Lunch Break: 1 Hour

Short Break: 30 minutes / 30 minutes (Total 1 hour)

Working: 4 days in a week

Off days: 3 days in a week 

In a week I’m working 40 hours excluding breaks. In a month I’m working 160 hours excluding breaks. Do my company need to pay OT or are they really following Malaysian labour law? 

Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you!

Under the Employment Act, an employee works more than 48 hours per week, OT wages must be paid.
