Organising regular events for all members of the firm is pretty much synonymous with the Liedekerke approach 'we work hard but play hard as well'. A number of events such as the Liedekerke Summer Event, the Liedekerke After Summer Event, the Liedekerke Revue, our regular afterwork drinks throughout the year, ‘brain maniac’ breakfasts in the firm, etc… are recurring events that allow us to connect with each other more outside the professional working environment which obviously has a positive impact to the cooperation in the office as well. Soak up the cool atmosphere that is strong at these events by watching some after-event movies.

The Belgian transposition of the EU Directive on transparent and predictable working conditions: next steps for employers. In Belgium, the transposition of the EU Directive 2019/1152 on transparent and predictable working conditions in the European Union (the Directive) is not yet complete: although the deadline for transposition was set by the EU on 1 August 2022, the draft bill was only filed in the Belgian House of Representatives on 7 July 2022 (the Draft bill). It is then highly likely that Belgium will not meet the EU deadline. 

However, the Draft bill already provides the elements that should be considered as of today since the law is expected to come into force in the next few months and foresees that employees whose employment agreement started before the date of entry into force of the (future) law will be able to avail themselves of the new rights enshrined.

In our latest newsletter, our Labour & Employment team discusses the (future) new obligations for employers. Read it here.
