How do I prove how long some one has been on a computer
I employ a person who works on my lap top computer in his own home. He does mostly word documents and I pay him per hour. I am sure he claims for a lot more hours than he does. I dont want to accuse him without any evidence.Is there a way to prove he has been working on the computer and not just prove when he has logged on and off?

Maybe you should pay him per document, then you know what you are paying for.

Is he writing or editing the Word docs? If he's editing, you can have him switch on 'Track changes' - that gives times for any changes that are made, I think, so you'll be able to have at least a rough idea of what he's been up to.

Install a keylogger to literally log every key stroke he makes & when - okay, you'd have to warn him not to use the laptop for anything that would jeopardise his own privacy (ie online banking, eBay, PayPal, etc) but would be a definitive method.

Simple, employ someone else to fulfill the same task and compare the number of hours charged. The comparison may bring you the answer you require.

If they are word documents, you can open the document and select File > Properties. On the statistics tag it will tell you the editing time.
