Belgium - Deal on night work in e-commerce - December 31, 2015

The social partners reached an agreement for the development of a framework that regulates night work for webshops. The agreement between employers and trade unions provides a general global framework, wherein each company is still free to negotiate its own conditions and logistics around night work. The details of the requested adjustment, which arose in the spring of 2015, have now been concluded. The signed agreement defines the subjects which must be discussed as part of a company agreement or workplace rule to regulate night work. The agreement should give e-commerce a big boost.
