A new decision by the Federal Labour Court (BAG) includes an important change in the law: On 13 September 2022, Germany’s highest labor court ruled that employers – regardless of the size of the company and the existence of a works council – must record the working hours of their employees.
On 23 June 2022, the Bundestag passed a bill to implement the Working Conditions Directive (EU) 2019/1152. This is intended to create transparency and predictability of working conditions and improve them overall. The law is expected to enter into force on 1 August 2022.
Please note that this event will be held in German only.
