I am working in a private limited company and we are in a phase of formulating new policies for the employees. I need guidance over the lunch hours of the employees. We work in a shift from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm for 6 days of week in general shift for the staff members. The lunch time is 30 minutes. If I calculate the working hours inclusive of lunch time then for a week it becomes 51 hours. Whereas it is mentioned in Factories Act that the working hours shall be 48 hours.
So I have a questione "Whether Lunch Time is included in the office hours or not"? is there any such judgement or law supporting the answer?
