    Retail trade will now be able to use the Flexi-job system, which already allows some part-time catering employees who work a certain amount of hours to do extra hours without paying social charges. This change was approved by the Minster’s Council on Friday, and will bring in a series of measures approved during the summer agreement on the 2018 budget. Pensioners will now be eligible for the system as well.

    “Independent traders (butchers, bakers…) will be able to take on employees for busy periods more easily thanks to this system”, explained Maggie De Block (Open Vld), the Minister for Social Affairs.
