Bahrain-based company starts counting commute as part of working hours

Unless you have the luxury of working from home, commuting to the office can be one of the most frustrating parts of your day.
Even if you finish on time, you’ll often get stuck in peak traffic, and sometimes you might even end up reaching home at the same time as if you had worked late.

Back in 2015, the European Court of Justice ruled that time spent commuting to work should count as working time – and for the first time, a Bahrain-based company will abide by the ruling.

Kaizen Medical will now count the time its workers spend travelling to medical project sites, centres, or clinics as working time, according to Gulf Daily News.

Effectively workers will have shorter days, based on their average travel time, meaning they will get to spend more time with their family and friends.

Do you wish your employer would introduce something similar?
