I will explain the importance of alert settings and notification settings.


Reasons to prevent long working hours

Managers need to know working hours, including overtime (overtime).


By setting alerts and notifications in KING OF TIME, you can check the attendance status in a near real-time manner, reduce overtime work, and manage the status of teleworkers who have difficulty meeting each other on a daily basis. It is a function that benefits both managers and employees and can identify various problems.


  • Manager side : Understanding overtime work, checking the work load of each employee, improving work, managing employee health, etc.
  • Employee side : Understanding overtime work, work improvement, health management, etc.


Examples of using the alert / notification function

This is an example of a company that has set the above functions.


When I received regular supervision from the Labor Standards Inspection Office, I explained that "I am using the KING OF TIME alert mail to be aware of it in a timely manner, not after closing the time card." The KING OF TIME alert notification email was highly evaluated for working hours management and overtime measures . It is exactly a function that has been endorsed by the government.


Review the upper limit of overtime work

As part of the work style reform that came into effect in April 2019, the Labor Standards Law was amended and the upper limit of overtime work was stipulated in the law.




Due to this revision of the law, the upper limit of overtime work will be 45 hours a month and 360 hours a year in principle, and it will not be possible to exceed this unless there are special special circumstances (*) .


* For special provisions, please refer to "Easy-to-understand explanation of the upper limit of overtime work" (external link).
Large companies will be required to introduce it from April 2019, and small and medium-sized companies will be required to introduce it from April 2020.
