European Justice supports registration of workday

According to the newspaper La Vanguardia the lawyer of the European justice supports that companies must register the workdays of their employees

The Supreme Court had ruled that companies were not required to account for hours of work, but a general lawyer of the Court of Justice of the European Union has corrected the Supreme Court.

The lawyer has recommended that companies in Spain implement a system of computing the effective working hours of their workers full time.

The opinions of the general counsel are usually followed in most cases even though they may not coincide with the court's decision.

The article also echoes a demand made long ago by unions to Deutshe Bank when it did not want to implement a system of time control, in the same way, remember that the directive on working time and the European Charter of Fundamental Rights It forces companies to implement a computer system for working hours.

Without a system of hourly control it is not possible to determine the amount of work actually done, nor to differentiate between ordinary and extraordinary hours.
