Van Olmen & Wynant releases 5th Edition of Labour and Employment Compliance in Belgium

Van Olmen & Wynant has just published the fifth edition of the book “Labour and Employment Compliance in Belgium” with Wolters Kluwer International. This practical guide, authored by Chris Van Olmen, gives an extensive overview of the national employment law of Belgium in all its aspects, from recruiting to termination, working conditions, compensation and benefits to collective bargaining.

This book – one of a series derived from Kluwer’s matchless publication International Labour and Employment Compliance Handbook –  fulfills the need of employers and their counsel for accurate and detailed knowledge of laws in Belgium.

The volume proceeds in a logical sequence through such topics as the following:

  • written and oral contracts
  • interviewing and screening
  • evaluations and warnings
  • severance pay
  • reductions in force
  • temporary workers
  • trade union rights
  • wage and hour laws
  • employee benefits
  • workers’ compensation
  • safety and environmental regulations
  • immigration law compliance
  • restrictive covenants
  • anti-discrimination laws
  • employee privacy rights
  • dispute resolution
  • recordkeeping requirements

A wealth of practical features such as checklists of do’s and don’ts, step-by-step compliance measures, applicable fines and penalties, and much more contribute to the book’s day-to-day usefulness. Easy to understand for lawyers and non-lawyers alike, this book is sure to be welcomed by business executives and human resources professionals, as well as by corporate counsel and business lawyers.
