Time tracking is now mandatory in german companies. Trust based systems are now officially illegal. Which is good because most of the time they led to exploitation of workers.
@bitboxer Will be super interesting to see what implications that will have.
There were times where I would've totally disagreed with mandatory time tracking as a concept.
I was young and naive once.
Not sure how agencies and consultancies will deal with the fallout. As far as I understand it german worker's laws are quite strict and the only way companies were able to ignore them was by not tracking anything at all. That needs to change now.
I tend to agree: That's probably a good thing.
