Employee management systems streamline overtime monitoring
Employee management systems can help firms streamline overtime monitoring, which is a particular important issue nowadays, since UK employees work more than 5 weeks for free, according to a recent study.
The poll of over 16,000 of Britain’s workers conducted by CV-Library revealed that the average UK professional contracted to work 7.5 hours per day is actually working 8 hours and 16 minutes daily. The survey also found that employees are working 26.5 days more than their contracted hours every single year, without being paid overtime; this, combined with the average UK salary of £32,938 per year, suggests that workers are being short-changed by a staggering £3,352 every single year.
In addition, the research also revealed that 14.2 percent of full-time employees are working over 10 hours per day, far exceeding the 48 hour per week limit currently imposed by EU employment laws.
Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library commented: “In the first quarter of the year we have seen wages rise year-on-year, but when compared with the previous quarter salaries actually declined by 0.9 percent – and with the introduction of the national living wage and concerns around the EU referendum, we expect wages to decline even further into Q2 2016.
With many UK businesses facing low productivity as the nation struggles with skills shortages and economic uncertainty, it’s extremely concerning to see that full-time workers are forced to pick up the slack with no reward. The government needs to work with businesses to tackle the issues head-on; especially for regions like Scotland where workers are facing worryingly long work days.”
