The new world of work in Belgium

As a result of COVID-19 and measures put in place in response to the pandemic, businesses around the world – including in Belgium – have adopted new innovations in the area of employment. One such innovation relates to the increased need to conduct work from home.

A year after the pandemic began, home-office remote work has proven so effective, many believe it will become a fixture of our post-pandemic future. But remote work raises a host of legal and administrative challenges. This publication – based on the 16 February 2021 webinar The Future is Now: The New World of Work in Belgium and hosted by CMS legal experts Katrien Leijnen and Sofie Kusters with CMS Belgium – explores the impact of homeworking in Belgium for both workers and companies. Read the article, listen to the podcast and watch webinar recording on this topic below.
