Future Of Work: WorkForce Software Introduces First Global Enterprise Workforce Management Solution For Labor Compliance With REP-P Certification In Brazil

Livonia, MI (BUSINESS WIRE) - WorkForce Software, the #1 rated workforce management solution for large employers, is pleased to announce it is the first workforce management software provider to offer Point Registration Treatment Program (REP) REP-P Certification to global employers with operations in Brazil. WorkForce Software’s REP-P Certification enables global organizations to remain compliant with local labor regulations while maintaining the benefits of having this capability and certification in one global workforce management solution —uniquely offered by WorkForce Software to global enterprises.

The Brazilian government has enacted regulations to govern the registration of employee work hours, including the REP-P certification, as part of broader labor laws aimed to ensure equitable working conditions. Ordinance 671 provides a comprehensive regulatory framework for the registration of employees' work hours involving guidelines for the use and certification of timekeeping systems, which are categorized under REP-A, REP-C, and REP-P, ensuring lawful labor practices. WorkForce Software supports Brazil’s Ordinance 671, REP-A, REP-C, and REP-P.‚Äč This certification from WorkForce Software is fundamental for companies operating in Brazil, particularly those with a significant number of deskless workers, as it directly influences payroll accuracy, labor dispute resolution, and overall operational effectiveness.

"At WorkForce Software, we are thrilled to announce our REP-P certification, ensuring multinational enterprises with operations in Brazil adhere to local labor regulations and remove the risk of penalties and legal entanglements,” said Jeff Moses, CEO of WorkForce Software. “With over 65% of Fortune 500 corporations with operations in Brazil, supporting these regulations was of paramount importance. For large employers, failure to ensure full compliance with local regulations can mean costly mistakes, manual workarounds, and unnecessary risks to the business. We are pleased to be the first enterprise workforce management provider to hold this certification."

WorkForce Time and Attendance, already compliant with the Point Registration Treatment Program (REP), is expanding its regulatory compliance commitment with REP-P Certification. WorkForce Software's clock solutions, including WorkForce WebClock, Suite Clocks, and Suite Mobile Clocks, are the first to be REP-P certified, providing secure, compliant, and convenient timekeeping for employees across various devices and locations. This milestone underscores WorkForce Software's commitment to innovation, supporting the ongoing changes to Brazilian labor legislation and enabling organizations to meet the local labor legislative requirements.

WorkForce Software continues to see an increase in net new customers, indicating the growing market demand for global workforce management solutions as large enterprises face increasing compliance challenges and unique regional requirements.
