To ensure the rights of workers, European member states must oblige EU employers to setup an objective, reliable and accessible system by which they record the daily working time of each employee. This was a ruling by the European Court of Justice in July 2019. The Court points to the importance of the fundamental right of every employee to have a limit on the maximum working hours and on daily and weekly rest periods. Member States therefore must ensure employees can actually invoke the rights they have. If working hours are not recorded properly, the Court holds that it is not possible to safeguard those rights.
