Recent changes have ensured that cross-border workers will be entitled to child care vouchers. Child vouchers are a benefit scheme in which workers contribute part of their wage to buy subsidies vouchers for child care facilities. The benefit scheme was opened to cross-border workers after a recent court ruling charged Luxembourg with illegally excluding children of cross-border workers from student subsidies. Under the adapted benefit scheme 355,800 cross-border workers, comprising 44% of the country’s workforce, will be entitled to child vouchers.
