Several measures were taken to enable employers to cope with the various crises they have faced in recent years.

Some measures will end on 31 March 2023.

These are:

  •  vaccination leave; as of 1 April 2023, workers who wish to remain absent from work to be vaccinated must, by agreement with their employer, take a day’s holiday or time off in lieu (unless the joint committee or the company has agreed otherwise);
  • temporary economic unemployment ‘energy’; the employer who wishes to switch to the classic temporary economic unemployment scheme as of 1 April 2023, will have to comply with the general (classic) rules in force for this type of unemployment;
  • the amounts (or income thresholds) for the calculation of the attachable or assignable portions; as of 1 April 2023, the usual reference income thresholds will once again apply;
  • the neutralisation of the number of hours worked by a student in the healthcare sector for the 600-hour quota; as of 1 April 2023, the hours worked in the healthcare sector will be taken into account for the annual 600-hour quota;
  • the exemption from personal social security contributions and the specific tax regime (separate tax at 33%) for pensioners employed in the healthcare sector; as of 1 April 2023, pensioners working in the healthcare sector will be liable for the payment of personal contributions to the NSSO and their wages will be taxed at the progressive rate.
