Kota Kinabalu: Operators of fast food premises here better beware as the State Labour Department has resumed "Ops Patuh" throughout Sabah.

The continuous operation focuses on ensuring employers comply with the set working hours, especially overtime and payments, including breaks.

"It also aims to prevent employees from being suppressed and forced to work more than they are supposed to.

"In addition, Ops Patuh targets to educate both employers and employees on their rights and responsibilities.

"Most fast food premises have been found to start their operation as early as 8am, some of them operating for 24 hours a day," said the department in a statement.

Ops Patuh was simultaneously carried out throughout Sabah on Tuesday, involving 628 employees and 43 fast food premises.

A total of five investigation papers were opened and seven notices of compliance were issued to employers.
