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. Occupational doctors will be contact tracers in the workplace and in this context have been given the authority to: identify high-risk contacts in the company; issue a quarantine certificate for these workers; and refer certain workers to be tested or to carry out the test themselves if they consider such action to be more appropriate. This does not mean that employers can now have their workers tested on a large scale and systematically...

New National Labour Council CLA Sets Framework for Covid-Telework

Traditionally, Belgian labour law distinguishes between two forms of telework, namely structural telework, regulated by the Collective Labour Agreement n° 85, and occasional telework, regulated by the Act on Workable and Agile Work. Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, a third category has been added, namely 'Covid telework', which was, at a certain point, recommended but has now been made compulsory again by the government. Until recently, this ‘Covid telework’ was a 'sui generis' regime for which no legal framework had been developed...
