Labor Laws in Belgium
Hiring executives in Belgium should not be taken lightly and you must be aware of the local laws and norms before starting the search process. While investigating the possibility of conducting an executive search in Belgium, it is important to gain a clear understanding of Belgium’s labor laws. Here are some Belgian labor laws to consider.
In Belgium, work hours are limited to eight hours per day, and cannot be extended. The total weekly hours are thirty-eight per week. It is strictly prohibited in Belgium to work more than the legal working hours. Furthermore, according to Belgian labor law, no one can work outside the applicable schedules, on Sundays, bank holidays or at nighttime.
For those jobs in Belgium that require overtime or evening work, such as law enforcement, overtime is paid at 50 % above the normal rate. If the overtime takes place on a Sunday, the rate is 100 % of the worker’s pay.
Belgian Business Culture
Due to the existing tensions between the northern and southern regions of the country, Belgium has often struggled to form a government. Belgium is in a continual dance of compromise when it comes to the country’s governing powers. Therefore, it is of little surprise that when it comes to business, one of the most vital elements of business in Belgium is compromise. In fact, by Belgian cultural standards, intolerance to compromise is unacceptable.
