Belgium: Employers calls to end compulsory teleworking

Moreover, the majority of the organisation are requesting the employees to work from home, and it is the only choice for the workers to perform their duties.

Additionally, the existing regulation that gives permission to the employees to go to their workplace once a week has been provided that teleworking is well suited to their profession. On the other hand, the employers’ federations think that the work from home can be stopped soon.

They further mentioned, “Currently, the data that has been shared is showing a downward trend. It is duration to put the telework regulation back in the hands of companies and opt for a recommendation.”

Additionally, the workers have highlighted that this kind of opportunity to telework is not for everyone. As a result, a general responsibility is not suitable for everyone.

On Wednesday, according to the Neutral Union for the Self-Employed (SNI), the mandatory procedure was “no longer tenable.”
