A new commission for cross-borders workers 

ALEBA has more than 10,000 members and is by far the largest trade union in Luxembourg's financial sector. Our members reside in Luxembourg, France, Belgium and Germany. ALEBA has set up a special committee that endeavours to answer and address its members questions and needs. This committee also relays information to politicians in each country in order to advance projects and request amendments to laws.

We here to explain it all to you!

The remote working obligation disappears as of 1st July but remote working is not totally over!

The agreement of 20 October 2020 on remote working defines two types of remote working:

  • Occasional remote working (to cope with unforeseen events or when it represents less than 10% on average of the teleworker's normal annual working time).
  • Regular remote working (any remote working situation that is not occasional).

WHAT HAPPENS IF I EXCEED THE QUOTA?

Social security issues

An employee who does more than 25% of his/her work from home must join the social security system of his/her country of residence; this represents a cost for both the employer and the employee.

REFUSAL TO WORK REMOTELY BY AN EMPLOYEE: IS THIS A REASON FOR DISMISSAL?

  • Can my employer force me to work remotely?
    No, an employee's refusal to work remotely does not in itself constitute grounds for terminating the employment contract. The employee and the employer are free to choose the remote working formula.
