Working hours and overtime

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 08:13:58 PM  (Last updated: Fri, 22 Sep 2017 08:45:55 AM)


I’m working a 12 hour shift work. I understand that the maximum working hours in a week shall not exceed 48 hours. And maximum overtime in a month shall not exceed 104 hours. I easily work more than 48 hours a week e.g. 8 days and i’m being paid for my overtime and my overtime does not exceed 104 hours. But there is no limit of working hours including overtime in a week? Thank you.
