Time Clocks? Greek Bank, Supermarket Workers Can Soon Use Apps

ATHENS – No more punching time clocks – out of the past – as starting July 1  more than 150,000 workers at banks and major supermarket chains in Greece can check in and out of work using an app on their smartphones.

That digital labor card will be declared online and be available at the tap of a key to employees, employers and monitoring authorities, showing working hours, overtime, shifts, teleworking, breaks, days off and the holidays of every worker, starting with those sectors, said Kathimerini.

The method is seen expanding through 2023 throughout the business sector although it wasn’t said it would apply to public workers notoriously cantankerous when it comes to evaluating their efforts.

Workers will declare arrival at and departure from work by scanning their Labor Card’s QR code as mobile phones more often take over daily actions.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
