During the month of February 2023, the social inspection services will carry out national flash controls in the transport sector, including courier companies.
A flash control is an announced control that is mainly informative and preventive in nature. This does not mean, however, that the inspection services will not make a report when serious or repeated offences have been committed.
See our tips below on how to best prepare for these announced controls.
Violators of social regulations and unreported work are the target of this action.
In a question for an expert , we explain the employer's rights and obligations in the event of a social inspection.
The Belgian Service d'information et de recherche sociale/Sociale Inlichtingen- en Opsporingsdienst [Information and Social Research Department] has put together a specific checklist for this sector. It contains the documents that are likely to be requested by the social inspector as well as the questions for which you can prepare. However, this checklist is only indicative in nature and does not prevent a social inspector from requesting that all documents required for his or her investigation are presented.
Here is a brief (non-exhaustive) overview of the main documents that we recommend you have at hand in the event of a company audit:
The social inspector can also directly ask questions or request information from the driver of a vehicle during a roadside check:
And can request certain documents to be submitted immediately:
In our LegalSmart webshop, you will find several of these standard documents. Legal all-in customers can contact their Legal Officer to obtain certain standard documents.
Partena Professional's sector information allows you to familiarise yourself with the sector provisions specific to your joint committee.
Our Legal Partners are following up on the constantly evolving legislation. In the context of our 'Legal Privileged Partners (LPP)' service, our team can examine your social documents and ensure compliance with social legislation.
As part of the exercise, if desired, a report with a risk analysis can be made and we can give you the required recommendations. With this service, you will no longer fear a visit by a social inspector.
You can visit the website of the SIRS/SIOD to consult the results of last year's flash controls.
This flash action should not make us forget that social legislation must be observed all year round. Unexpected controls are there to increase awareness, particularly in the transport sector, which is a key target in the fight against social fraud.
The following announced flash controls will be organised in 2023:
