The new law on time registration is here!

The new law will come into force on the 1st of July 2024. From this point on all companies must ensure that they have implemented an approved time registration system.


What companies need to know and do before July 1, 2024

We have already shared a lot of content on the new law regarding time registration, which is the result of a verdict made by the European Court of Justice. The verdict states that all employees across the EU have the right to limitation of working hours and to rest periods. Since the verdict, which was made in 2019, we have waited eagerly to see what requirements the law would entail.

On the 23rd of January the Danish Folketing adopted a new EU directive, which is a result of the verdict. The directive states that companies need to implement obejctive, reliable and accessible systems for time registration. Information regarding employees’ working hours have to be accessible for both the employer and employees for 5 years.

The new law will come into force on the 1st of July 2024. From this point on all companies must ensure that they have implemented an approved time registration system. It is up to the companies to decide exactly what system they want to use, as long as it fulfills the requirements of being objective, reliable and accessible. The system must ensure that the following rules for rest periods and limitation of weekly working hours are respected:

  • It is not permitted to work more than an average of 48 hours a week over the course of 4 months
  • Workers are entitled to a least 11 hours of coherent rest a day
  • Workers are entitled to a least one day off a week
