Do Not Forget to Provide Any of Your Employees Who Must be Present in Your Workplace with a Document to Certify this Fact
ALTIUS/Tiberghien, November 2020

Belgium is, for the second time, in lockdown. The new Ministerial Decree of 1 November 2020 stipulates that, as from today until 13 December 2020, all workers are obliged to telework. However, an exception applies when either the employee’s role or the continuity of business operations, activities and services does not allow for teleworking. In such a case, the employer must provide the worker with a certificate or other supporting document attesting that his/her presence in the workplace is needed. The ability to arrange for occasions on which workers could return to the company premises, which was provided for in the Ministerial Decree of 18 October 2020, has been deleted...

New Teleworking Rules to Limit Further Spread of COVID-19
ALTIUS/Tiberghien, October 2020

Introduction On 16 October 2020 the government reinforced the urgent measures to limit the further spread of COVID-19. Teleworking is no longer highly recommended, but has become the standard for all employees whose roles allow for telework. Yet, the new rule is less far-reaching than that in place during the first lockdown in March 2020, as an exception now applies when the continuity of business operations, activities and services does not allow for teleworking. Moreover, companies can arrange occasions on which employees can return to the company premises if they comply with sanitation measures. The reinforced measures will apply until 19 November 2020...
