Get Up to Speed with the New Belgian Labor & Employment Laws

December 15, 2022 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (CET)
Ends: 2:00 PM (CET)

There have been many recent changes in Belgian labor and employment law - changes that are likely to significantly impact your daily HR practice. 

For instance, are you aware that employees can ask for a four-day working week, or to work more during week 1 and less during week 2? What about the right to be offline after working hours? Or the fact that a sick leave note will no longer be required for every short-term absence? Then there is the new definition of a “working day” in the Civil Code; the new obligations on employers with respect to training; and the revamp of the rules on the reintegration of employees on long-term sick leave and medical force majeure. And new laws have recently come into force implementing the EU Transparent and Predictable Working Conditions Directive and the Work Life Balance Directive.  

Emmanuel, Evelien and Gloria will bring you up to speed with the new and upcoming rules and will share best practices with you concerning their implementation in your company.
