Occupational Doctors' Enhanced Role in Combating COVID-19: Contact Tracing, Quarantine Certificates and Testing
ALTIUS/Tiberghien, February 2021

Introduction On 21 January 2021 a new royal decree was published in the Official Gazette which has temporarily extended occupational doctors' role in combating the COVID-19 pandemic in the workplace.

This does not mean that employers can now have their workers tested on a large scale and systematically...

Points for Retail Sector Employers to Consider when Dismissing Employees for Economic or Technical Reasons
ALTIUS/Tiberghien, December 2020

The retail sector has been one of the sectors most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and as a result employers therein might be considering dismissing employees for economic or technical reasons. Employers must be aware that most joint committees in the retail sector have entered into collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) obliging employers to first take measures to avoid dismissals and, if dismissals cannot be avoided, to comply with a specific procedure. This article highlights the most important points that employers must consider...
