Time tracking is now mandatory in Germany | GoTime Cloud

As you know time tracking is now mandatory in Germany to ensure employee working time is recorded. The Federal Labour Court in Erfurt ruled on September 13th, that employers must introduce time-tracking systems to guarantee working hours are recorded in businesses in Germany.

Before, employers were obliged to track working hours exceeding eight hours per day, but in practice, many employers did not comply with these minimum standards. Now, the Federal Labor Court has confirmed that German employers are obliged to track working hours more thoroughly. With the new decision, German employers need to introduce working-time recording systems and avoid a poorly planned implementation of employee time attendance software.

To keep up with the new regulation, ZKTeco provides a versatile range of devices, time attendance systems and workforce management solutions to accurately register employee working hours and optimize productivity on the individual, departmental, and entity-wide levels.
