Belgian employment law is a rather complex and atypical matter. Unlike the majority of the other European countries, Belgium distinguishes between blue-collar and white-collar workers. Furthermore it is easier to fire an employee in Belgium than in most EU-Member States. An employer does not need any form of external approval.
This book gives an overall picture of Belgian employment law. General references can be found in the bibliography which also includes interesting e-mail addresses. Readers can contact the authors by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
