<p>Due to the Royal Decree of 26 January 2014 CBA no. 108 concerning temporary employment and temporary work is now generally binding.</p>

Due to the Royal Decree of 26 January 2014 CBA no. 108 concerning temporary employment and temporary work is now generally binding.

As of 1 September 2013 the legislation on temporary work was fundamentally modified. Thus:

  • a new justification ("motif") for using temporary workers is now introduced and regulated - this motif is called "inflow";
  • the use of daily contracts is regulated;
  • rules on information on and control of temporary work have been modified;
  • the "48-hour rule" with respect to the signing of employment contracts for temporary work is being phased out.

These modifications were discussed in detail in our Newsflash of 1 September 2013 concerning temporary work.

The entire regulatory regime for temporary work is laid down by the Act of 24 July 1987 on temporary employment, temporary work and putting workers at the disposal of a user and by CBA no. 108. This CBA no. 108 has now been declared generally binding by the Royal Decree of 26 January 2014.
