The Ordinance, especially in the context of women employees, makes it clear that their employers would not compel them to work after 7 pm without their written consent. In no circumstances, however, a commercial establishment employer would force his employees to work more than 8 hours at a stretch in a day and 48 hours in a week, states the GO. No employee would be compelled to work for two shifts in a row and their rights relating to getting overtime and weekly offs would remain unaffected.
