The registration of working hours came into force in May 2019. The Council of Ministers approved a Decree Law in which it obliged employees to sign in both upon entry and exit. Therefore, companies must keep a record of all their employees, regardless of the day they work. A record that they will have to keep for at least four years and be available to employees and unions. Each worker must know the distribution and duration of their working day. And overtime must be recorded.

Although all companies are aware of the need and obligation to record working hours, some have not been able to make this change and adapt to the new situation. And as a consequence, the first inspections and the first fines have arrived.

Time control software

Time control systems are not new. Many companies have been using programs such as Excel and other databases to record working hours for years. But, a time control software is much more effective. Not only because of the wide range of advantages they offer but also because it allows adapting to the different needs of each company and, even, to new work models such as teleworking.
