Are trainees forced to do overtime?

In exceptional cases, adult trainees are permitted to work up to 10 hours each day instead of 8 hours, but only if the overtime is compensated for in the following week. Stricter regulations apply to trainees under the age of 18 under the Youth Employment Protection Act (maximum working time of 40 hours over 5 days).  You are allowed to work for a maximum of 8.5 hours if the working time is correspondingly shorter on another working day of the week.
