Described algorithms of monitoring the employee’s working time at the computer. The main tools for monitoring are presented, the expediency of using such tools and the conditions under which they should be used are substantiated. The work of one of the most common software monitoring models is presented, their advantages and disadvantages are described, and a comparison is made. Algorithmic and software monitoring tools are proposed, which allow monitoring the user’s activity and recording the time spent by the employee at the computer. They are based on monitoring certain data, such as user activity and user presence at the computer.
