I would like to find out the allocated number of hour a person can take i.e. for tea break, lunch etc whilst he or she is working on a 12hour shift cycle per day. It was my understanding that the allocated time was 1.5 hours for the 12 hour duration. However a fellow colleague mentioned that it is actually 3 hours (not to be taken concurrently). Can you please help confirm as it is causing alot of discomfort in my work place. Thanks.

12 hours - 1.5 hours rest = 10.5 hours working hours.

10.5 hours - 8 hours normal hours of work = 2.5 hours overtime work.

Are you paying overtime wages for the overtime work of 2.5 hours?

No overtime is paid as staff is working 3 x 12hrs or 4x 12hrs and get 3 and 4 days off respectively.
