Flemish Employment Office decides to monitor jobseekers’ surfing habitsMonday, 04 September 2017 20:00
The regional office insists that this “screening” will be just one of the components of the mediation procedure conducted with a jobseeker.
However, the General Federation of Belgian Labour (FGTB) has misgivings about the idea. “It has many risks and can create a ‘big-brother’ feeling,” commented Caroline Copers, Secretary-General of the FGTB’s Flemish wing. “Could one consider doing the same thing with employers? For example, to see which sectors or companies do not score highly on honest recruitment, without sex or age discrimination.”
The VDAB pointed out that checking up on employers was not currently on the cards, but could be studied. Just like jobless persons, company officials each have an identification number on the site, so it would also be possible to monitor them.
