I have your typical 38hr full-time employment contract in my current role and so do many of my colleagues. The problem is, during our induction we were told by HR that our working hours are from 9 am - 5:30 pm with only a 30min break. If you can't be bothered with the maths, that's a 40.5 hour week. Now obviously you're expected to work additional hours to meet the expectations of the role and I understand that's part of the contract and I am compensated accordingly. I currently do 55hrs+ in such manner and am not challenging that issue. My question is - can they actually openly communicate that my work week is 40.5hrs when my employment contract says 38?
