Two new CBAs in the context of the corona crisis
16/10/2020

Again, more clarity!

At their meeting on 7 October 2020, the social partners concluded two new CBAs which once again provide more clarity in the context of the ongoing corona crisis.

CBA No 103/5

The corona crisis forced the legislator to take additional measures to increase workers’ flexibility. In this context, the system of corona parental leave, corona time credit and corona landing jobs was created.

However, the question was what the impact of these regimes would be on the possibility of later enjoying time credit, career reduction and landing jobs. After all, there is an employment condition of 12 or 24 months.

The social partners confirm in the new CBA No 103/5 that periods of corona parental leave, corona time credit and corona landing jobs are neutralised for the calculation of the employment condition.

CBA No 148

On 18 March 2020, CBA No 147 on the system of temporary unemployment for white-collar workers for economic reasons was concluded. This CBA expired on 30 June 2020.

On 7 October 2020, the social partners concluded a new CBA No 148. The approach of the new CBA No 148 is identical to the previous one: companies wishing to claim economic unemployment for their employees can rely on this national CBA and therefore do not first have to negotiate a company collective agreement or draw up a business plan.

The content of this new CBA No 148 is also almost identical to the previous one, with the exception of the supplement which must be paid by the employer on a daily basis: this is set at EUR 5.36 (instead of EUR 5.00). In addition, it is confirmed that this new CBA also applies to the transitional regime of temporary unemployment for economic reasons for white-collar workers.

CBA No 148 is valid until 31 December 2021.
