March 2015

In the future, employees who enjoy "wide discretion in managing their working schedule" and whose salary for social security purposes exceeds CHF 120'000 (incl. bonus) may no longer have to record their working time. This will require some sort of collective bargaining agreement which includes specific measures to protect the health of employees. In addition, employees who have "a certain discretion in managing their working schedule" may be subject to a simplified requirement to record their working time, provided the employees have entered into an agreement to this effect. An amendment to the relevant ordinance will be enacted as soon as possible – i.e. presumably in the third quarter of 2015 – after a shortened consultation period.
