Time recording system

There must be a time recording system that makes working hours and overtime (as defined in your Employment Agreements) transparent for both employees and employer on a daily basis.

Your time recording system should be appropriate to the size of your company (for example a time sheet).

The records must indicate the breaks/holiday days for the employees (on a daily basis), and the working records must be regularly approved by the employees (for example, regularly signed record sheet, checking clock).

You must keep records of employees’ working times for at least 24 months.

Your Inspector will also check the following things:

  • how the records are agreed with employees

  • how an employee could check what they are paid against these records

  • how the records are provided to employees

  • if employees are aware they have access to these records

  • that access to these records is provided to the Employees’ Representative
