    have/had been working hard.

    We have/had been working hard since this morning, so we are going to have a rest soon.

    Which verb in bold should I use?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: have/had been working hard.

    Have because:
    this is the same day
    there is no rupture, ei past and present are linked (you can notice this is an on-going action)
