What yesterday’s EU court ruling means for the games industry

From GamesIndustry.biz:

“Yesterday the ECJ ruled that employers in Europe must set up a system to track the daily working hours of their staff. The decision is an effort to crack down on unrecorded overtime and properly enforce the EU Working Time Directive, which restricts employers from making staff work more than 48 hours a week, and grants at least 11 consecutive hours of rest every 24 hours.”

With the seemingly unending problem of crunch in the games industry, this ruling could help protect developers from exploitative management practices.
