Certain formalities need to be accomplished during the (pre-)electoral process.
A brief summary of the formalities which need to be accomplished between day X - 60 and day X - 35.
Reminder! Social elections will be held between 13 May and 26 May 2024 in all companies employing a minimum number of workers. The aim is to elect workers' representatives to a committee for prevention and protection at work (C.P.P.W.) and a works council (W.C.) in companies which usually employ, on average, at least 50 workers and at least 100 workers respectively during the period from 1 October 2022 to 30 September 2023.
Two key dates are mentioned for the electoral process:
Days X and Y define the steps to be taken during the process. The steps are:
The process lasts for 150 days.
Please note! Employers are required to process a large amount of personal data in preparation for the social elections. The processing of those data must comply with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 (GDPR).
At the latest on day X - 60 (between 15 and 28 December 2023), the employer informs in writing:
In all cases, even in the absence of a works council or a committee for prevention and protection at work or, failing such, an U.D., such information shall be recorded in a document conform to the model laid down by law. The duly filled in document must be posted in the various departments and divisions of the company. The posting may be replaced by making the document available by electronic means provided that all workers have access to the document during their normal working hours.
The information is communicated electronically via the web application provided for this purpose on the website of the FPS Employment, Labour and Social Dialogue. Failing this, a copy of the posted document shall be sent directly to the head offices of the inter-professional employee organisations and (if an WC must be established) the organisations representing executives.
Between X - 60 and X - 35 (between 9 and 22 January 2024), the employer must consult:
Please note! The formalities to be accomplished by day X - 35 will be described later.
