On 16 March 2022, the Luxembourg Parliament adopted a draft bill amending the Luxembourg Labor Code to involve staff delegations when introducing or modifying a specific telework scheme at a company level (“Law“).
Briefly, the introduction or modification of a specific teleworking scheme at a company level will be subject to the following:
- The information and consultation of the staff delegation for companies with fewer than 150 employees.
- Mutual agreement between the employer and the staff delegation on such regulations for companies with more than 150 employees.
Because a request for its exemption from the second round of voting was filed with the State Council, the Law is expected to enter into force in the next few days.
The purpose of the Law is to complement the convention on remote working of 20 October 2020, which was declared a general obligation under the Grand-ducal Regulation of 22 January 2021.
