New break reporting
Many employees are required to take breaks during their working hours. This is prescribed by lawmakers in several countries, who have thus ruled on binding break regulations. The length and rhythm of breaks varies from industry to industry. Employers who do not adhere to and therefore are guilty of breaking the rules risk facing serious penalties.
With our new update, we are greatly broadening the possibilities of break recording in clockodo and making it easier for both employers and employees to comply with the statutory requirements for work breaks.
The most important innovations relate to the registry of working time regulations. You can freely choose whether you define these regulations as the standard for the entire company or for individual employees. Configurable regulations include the maximum working time per day, per week, and at a time as well as set break intervals, the specific length and partitioning of which must be observed from a certain working time onward.
To this end, we offer you comfortable templates that meet the legal requirements in different countries. Of course, you can still freely configure – for instance, in order to consider special tariff or company agreements. You can also use this fine-tuning to quickly determine from which length of time interruptions are recorded as breaks or whether breaks are classified as working time (it is often handled this way in Poland, for example).
Using these options ensures a quick and reliable overview that – should there be any doubts – helps to protect the company against fines and prosecution. This way, cues are automatically displayed in the daily overview and employee reports if regulations have not been adhered to.
With an update following in the next few weeks, you will have the option of having required breaks automatically deducted in the event that employees do not observe the prescribed break times.
