From March 1, a new Labor Code enters into force, according to which all employers in Georgia are required to record the hours worked by employees.
By the order of the Minister of Health Ekaterine Tikaradze, a “table” has been issued, on which the working hours performed by employees, and their absences, should be recorded.
Employers are obliged to fill in the table every month. Companies are required to keep an archive of these lists for up to 1 year.
“The employer is obliged to record the working time of employees in writing and/or electronically each working day, and to inform the employee of the monthly document of the working time (working hours), unless, due to the specifics of the work, it is impossible.
The working time registration form, as a monthly document, completed and signed in the form of a final written and/or electronic document, should be kept for 1 year with the employer or a structural subdivision/person designated by them.
