On 15 February 2022, the Federal Government reached an agreement on Belgium’s so-called “labour deal” (the Labour Deal) on a series of labour market reforms which are aimed at reaching an employment rate of 80% by 2030.

At this stage, only a political agreement has been reached. This agreement must now be discussed with the social partners and thereafter converted into legislative texts.

The Labour Deal consists of four pillars:

  • Improved work-life balance;
     
  • Individual training;
     
  • Better protection for platform workers; and
     
  • Other measures to increase the employment rate.
     

The following news alert lists the most important consequences of the new measures for Belgian employers.
