Is this legal?

Hi! I’m 17 and I’m working a “part time” job, even though it’s not part time as i’m contracted 16 hours but made to do 30-40 a week, even when I request not to do so. But, I’m getting assigned 9 hour shifts and everyone keeps saying I shouldn’t be getting assigned shifts that long because my break should be included in the 8 hours and shouldn’t be made to work 8 hours without a consecutive break.
Idk if it's legal but have you considered looking for a diff job where they don't abuse you as much?

They shouldn't be requesting that you do long shifts like that especially if you're studying etc. Check your contract - you can also contact ACAS for info on your rights
