    Im not sure this is what I need. They seem to imply that it creates a schedule and stuff like that whereas I just want to make sure that my employees are working and not slacking off on facebook and stuff like that. I also want to know if the have been working for x amount of hours.

    odesk does what you want i think. They install a spftware on the employee pc, and theyfollow him, taking screenshots every n minutes, allowing you to see his activity. They record the hours worked, so you pay only for that, in case the employee leaves he has to pause the software, no recording, no money paid.

    you have to work through them though, and they take a commission. Not sure if they have a self hosted solution.

    I had few workers on macs so I used this : spectorsoft.com/

    And for PC I know a friend of mine uses : pc-remote-monitoring.com/

    Obviously write into the contract that you are going to record them. There are some states where this is not allowed, so look into that.

    you may also check sourceforge.c0m & other similar open source download sites. I have never personally used that kind of software there, but I have seen them there.

    Paid versions may be better, but with the amount of companies & people outsourcing you may be able to find a open source solution for your job.

    Good luck

    I've tried many, RescueTime is by far the best. If you want to go with a zero cost solution create an account for your contractor and give them the username / pass. You can login to check the status. Or you can pay for an account and each have your own accounts, viewable from one panel.

    ODesk might be better if you want to verify with screenshots.

    You just state you'll be monitoring them upfront, before you hire them. If they have issue with it, check them off the list and move to the next job applicant.

    I can tell you what I'm using. It is free, very simple, and I find it effective. The software is called My Team Monitor, so if you google myteammonitor you will find their website where you can register an account, and the employees will download the software from. It logs when they started and ended their shifts, how active they were, and it also takes screenshots every few minutes so you can see what they were doing.
