On Sept. 13, 2022, the German Federal Labor Court ruled that employers are legally required to record employees’ working hours. No matter how big or small a company is.

What are the options for time recording?
The classic option of having each employee sign a form every day may be a legally secure but not efficient method. A digital solution that can be easily integrated into the company without much training is probably the more contemporary choice here.

What should a digital time recording system offer? In addition to the legally binding immutability of the stored working times, the focus should always be on the ease of use of the program. Any IT system should continuously help to improve work processes and not create new problem areas. The same applies to installation. In practice, web-based programs have proven their worth, as their structure makes them compatible with any IT system without costly rollout phases with any computer or smartphone.

Other advantages of a time recording system: Probably the biggest advantage is the chance to statistically collect and evaluate the exact working hours of each employee. Depending on the system, this allows for more detailed work and/or project schedules to be created, either graphically or in tabular form. This possibility of evaluation saves time and money.

Implement quickly and inexpensively!
Through an individual adaptation, a time recording system can be quickly and inexpensively connected or combined even with existing systems. We will be happy to advise you on this free of charge and without obligation.
