What to Know about EU’s Mandatory Time Tracking

As of 1 July 2024, the EU’s law regarding mandatory time tracking of employees’ working hours will be enforced. But how can companies comply and track time effectively without it feeling like excessive control? Our guide offers insights on effective time registration and maximizing the benefits of HR-ON Staff.

What does time tracking mean for you and your company? The new rules for tracking employees’ working hours require all businesses to implement a time-tracking system or software where employees can track their work hours.

This requirement stems from a ruling by the EU Court of Justice following the Deutsche Bank case in 2019. It now mandates that companies accurately record working hours. Therefore, companies should familiarize themselves with the law, update GDPR processes, and have everything in place by 1 July.

At first glance, the legislation may spark discussions about how time registration aligns with flexible working hours, which many companies have adopted. Pros and cons can be addressed in the workplace, allowing everyone to express their thoughts.
