E. Change of working hours

1. CONCEPT

Verily and wisely, management retained the prerogative, whenever exigencies of the service so require, to change the working hours of its employees. And as long as such prerogative is exercised in good faith for the advancement of the employer’s interest and not for the purpose of defeating or circumventing the rights of the employees under special laws or under valid agreements, this Court will uphold such exercise. (Union Carbide Labor Union (NLU) v. Union Carbide Philippines, Inc., G.R. No. 41314, 13 November 1992)
