ECJ ruling on working time records - practical impact for your European workforce
13 June 2019

This may seem at odds with today’s agile working environment, and its increasingly flexible and mobile workforce, but you need not take immediate action (unless already required by local laws), pending guidance on how Member States intend to apply the ruling.
Some practical steps are, however, recommended to manage risk and prepare for the local law and regulatory enforcement changes that will inevitably follow across jurisdictions.
