MEP’S VOTE TO SCRAP UK OPT-OUT FROM EU WTD
The European Parliament voted yesterday to phase out the UK opt-out from the EU Working Time Directive. This vote is likely to be of concern to all UK companies who have yet to install systems for
employee attendance monitoring the hours worked by their employees and have thus far relied on the UK opt-out.
The CBI and other organisations are fighting to keep the opt-out but it is likely that the �writing is on the wall� for the end of this arrangement, seen by many European countries as an outdated UK privilege.
Companies with a Tensor WinTA Time & Attendance system have no worries as a special module is available which handles the rules surrounding the Working Time Directive. However, companies who have old clocking-in systems, or none at all, need to take action soon.
