Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, The European Commission has Adopted Temporary Derogations from Certain Competition Rules in the Dairy, Flower, and Potato Sectors
ALTIUS/Tiberghien, May 2020

 On 30 April 2020, the European Commission adopted three implementing regulations allowing temporary derogations from the strict cartel prohibition provided for by EU competition law in three specific agricultural sectors: dairy, potato and live plants and flowers. The latter sector is said to broadly cover “live trees and other plants, bulbs, roots and the like, cut flowers and ornamental foliage”. According to the European Commission, these sectors have been particularly hard hit by the Covid-19 crisis and are without any doubt facing a period of serious market imbalance...

Reimbursement of Medicinal Products in Times of Pandemics and Budgetary Constraints: Why Quick Fixes Do Not Work
ALTIUS/Tiberghien, April 2020

  With national governments scrambling to take measures in order to counter the Covid-19 pandemic, we are again confronted with the fact that a EU common policy in the healthcare field is quasi inexistent. This is equally so in respect of the pricing and reimbursement of medicines. While the so-called Transparency Directive 89/105/EEC provides for a limited harmonization of pricing & reimbursement procedures, one however cannot deny a growing tendency of national governments to look beyond their national borders and even to collaborate in this field, as appears e.g...

Can a Employer Oblige its Employees to Work From Home as Part of a Prevention Plan to Avoid the Further Breakout of the Coronavirus?
ALTIUS/Tiberghien, March 2020

Following the measures announced by the Federal Government on 12 March 2020, more and more employers are considering implementing a temporary telework regime, in which employees are required to work from home. Can an employer impose such a measure and what are the implications?    An employer cannot unilaterally oblige an employee to work from home, except if employees are exposed to specific health and safety related risks at work. As a matter of principle, an employer is obliged to employ its employees at the agreed place of work...

Does the Coronavirus Crisis Allow me to Rely on ‘Hardship' Towards Private Contract Parties?
ALTIUS/Tiberghien, March 2020

The coronavirus crisis could make the ability of a business to perform pending contracts harder. Even though so-called ‘hardship’ clauses are perfectly valid and enforceable under Belgian law, hardship is not generally accepted as a principle of Belgian contract law. Until the rules on obligations of the new Civil Code, which recognise hardship, enter into force, there are exceptions and creative ways to deal with this problem...
