casino industry getting out of hand

The law states that you need 12 hours between your shifts, but at the company i work for certain departments don' t comply according to this. They make their managers (which is pregnant) come in at 19:00 for a shift untill closing time which can be anytime between 02:00 and 04:00 and then they expect them to start again at 11:30 the next day. Where is the 12 hours between shifts now. When you bring it up they get angry and say you have to be flexible. Can i get a labour law inspector to come and inspect the hours?

You certainly do need to have a 12 hour break between shifts. It is worthwhile getting hold of an inspector at the Department of Labour who will keep your name private and confidential.

Contact the nearest office of the U.I.F ( unemployment fund ) they also deal with labour disputes + know what the law states in these matters.
