Recording of working hours becomes mandatory » ISGUS IMPULS Digital

New Work vs. time clock?

The introduction of time recording in times of New Work presents companies with new challenges and opportunities. Time recording for employees is a much-discussed topic and the recent case law of the German Federal Labour Court (Bundesarbeitsgericht, BAG) once again provided food for thought. According to this, there is an obligation to record working time, which arises from §3 para. 2 no. 1 ArbSchG. As early as 2019, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) called for the practical implementation of working time recording. In Germany, employers are obliged to introduce an objective and reliable system with which the working time worked by employees can be recorded. The anchoring in the Labour Code will be done by the federal government.

End of trust-based working time?

Many of the 45 million employees in Germany currently work in a trust-based working time model, which is contrary to the BAG ruling. However, the new concept for recording working time offers numerous advantages and is primarily designed to protect workers. With open and transparent documentation of working hours, these can be recorded and planned in terms of quantity. Employees thus enjoy more freedom and flexibility. Time recording plays a central role, especially for a good work-life balance.
