I am currently working as an intern in a company in Singapore. My work period is 8 months and I do not have any leave that I can claim/take. If I want to take leave, I have to take an MC (medical certificate) as I am a student.
And also I do not have such thing as 'time-off for a while from work'. My lunch break is 1 hour however my supervisor did not specify any timing for lunch break. But usually my full time and intern colleagues go to lunch during 11.30am-1.30pm that timing.
I have a personal thing to attend to at 3pm which cannot be postponed, therefore I have to go out of office at around 2.45pm-3.45pm. Is it ok to not go for lunch at the usual time and instead reserve that 1 hour and attend my personal thing and go for lunch at the same time at 2.45pm instead? Isn't that basic rights as I just use my lunch break, at a different time to attend to some personal things. I did not take extra hours away from office. Is that acceptable? I would like to know how is it in other countries too.
Please do give me some suggestions. Thank you so much.
