The CBA also provides specific guarantees for workers who make use of this right. These new measures came into force on 1 October 2022.

Social security: "neutralisation" until 31 December 2022 of remote working abroad

Many workers worked remotely from abroad during the Covid-19 pandemic, which, in principle, has consequences for the applicable social security legislation. Last June, the European Administrative Commission responsible for the coordination of social security systems decided to maintain the measure to "neutralize" periods of remote working from abroad until 31 December 2022.

Discrimination on the basis of past health status will soon be prohibited

On 7 July 2022, the legislator adopted an Act amending the anti-discrimination legislation. Previously, the law prohibited discrimination on the basis of "current or future health status". From now on, it will be necessary to take into account the "state of health" in general, whether it concerns the present, future or past.
