Finding Flexibility in Overtime Rules

Many provisions of the Cambodian Labor Law seem to have been written to protect semi-skilled and unskilled workers, and rightly so. Garment factory workers do tough work for low wages, so the Law aims to protect them from overwork and other abuse from their employers.

But for professional workers, the rules on working hours and overtime are often more restrictive than industry norms. Whereas New York and Hong Kong bankers could be pulling 100+ hour weeks, their Cambodian counterparts are supposed to work no more than 48 hours a week or 8 hours a day. Any time over that amount must be paid at 150% of normal wages, or 200% if done between 10pm and 5am or on a day-off. Furthermore, the employee can’t be forced to work overtime, and overtime is limited to two-hour shifts.

Trademarks provide their owners the right to prevent rivals from using identical or confusingly similar identifying marks and trade names on their goods and services. The Law on Marks, Trade Names and Acts of Unfair Competition (2002) lists the steps for registering a trademark and the scope of protection.
This article answers common questions regarding trademark basics, the registration process, timing matters, and enforcement in Cambodia. For more specific information, the reader is directed to our report on Trademarks in Cambodia.
