Belgium -Parliament adopts stricter regulation of successive one-day contracts -June 07, 2013

Parliament has adopted a new law regulating temporary agency work, which limits the use of successive one-day contracts. From now on, the use of successive one-day contracts will be limited and can only be used repeatedly by the same user company if it can prove an absolute need for such flexible contracts. In other words, a user company has to prove the need for labour flexibility in order to justify the use of such insecure one-day contracts. Employers will have to pay compensation to the agency workers if they fail to do so. Social partners had lengthy debates about the issue in 2012.
