Time recording mandatory in Belgium: The Belgian government has announced that from 1 September 2024, companies will be required to use a time recording system for all their employees. This new legislation aims to ensure that employees do not work overtime and to improve work-life balance.

A time tracking system like the one provided by CleanJack will track employees’ working hours and ensure that hours worked are recorded correctly. The new legislation is the result of lengthy discussions between the government, trade unions and employer organisations. It is a step towards greater transparency and fairness in the workplace and will also help reduce overtime and stress among employees.

Companies will be required to keep and retain time records for at least five years. Failure to comply with the new legislation could result in fines and penalties for employers.

Reactions to new legislation
The new legislation has already received mixed reactions from companies and employees. Some believe it is a necessary step to protect workers’ rights and reduce overtime, while others fear it will create red tape and limit workers’ flexibility.

However, it is clear that timekeeping has become an important issue in Belgian labour law and companies should prepare for the introduction of the new system. In the coming months, the government will provide more information on how companies should implement the timekeeping system and what impact the new legislation will have on employees and employers.

Employers who fail to comply with this obligation may face fines and other penalties. CleanJack can help companies in Belgium and the Netherlands to automatically and accurately track employee timekeeping. Find out what it can do for you at: www.cleanjack.be
