The amount of the allowance provided by collective labour agreement (CLA) no. 46 will be revalued as from 1 July 2023.

As a reminder, this agreement allows:

  • employees aged at least 55 who can justify a professional career of at least 20 years in an employment system with night work to request, under certain conditions and provided that a particular procedure is observed, to permanently return to day work;
  • employees aged at least 50 who meet the same conditions to request to return to day work for serious medical reasons recognized by the occupational physician.

If the employment contract is terminated because the employer cannot comply with this request, the employee will be entitled for a period of 5 years to an additional allowance on top of his unemployment benefits at the employer’s expense.

As from 1 July 2023, the amount of this allowance will be set at € 176.70 per month.
