The end of the year is a time for looking back and looking ahead. 

We will certainly all remember 2020 as a year dominated by Covid-19, but there have also been other important developments in the field of labour and social security law that are having an impact on your day-to-day HR practice.

During this webinar, we guide you through the highlights of 2020 and give you a sneak peak into what is in the ‘pipeline’ for 2021 so that you start 2021 well prepared and fully informed.

ALTIUS’ employment lawyers, Philippe De Wulf, Ruth Maes and Annabel Coopman, set out the legal framework and share their practical experience with you to bring you fully ‘up to speed’.

They guide you through new developments in areas including:

  • termination of employment
  • time registration
  • discrimination
  • posting of workers
  • the transfer of an undertaking
  • social security
  • data protection

and they give you an overview of the social measures included in the new federal government’s coalition agreement.
