1. INTRODUCTION

Le gouvernement de la région de Bruxelles-Capitale a adopté ce 27 juillet 2017 l’ordonnance de régionalisation du bail d’habitation, venant à abroger et remplacer les dispositions de la loi du 20 février 1991 sur le bail de résidence principale et certaines dispositions du droit commun du bail.

L’ordonnance comprend, d’une part, des dispositions générales applicables à tous les baux d’habitation et, d’autre part, des dispositions spécifiques à chaque type de bail.

In its January edition, Bruxelles Métropole/Brussel Metropool (the magazine of BECI – the Brussels’ Chamber of Commerce) has dedicated an article to the subject of skill-based sponsorship.

Skill-based sponsorship is the system whereby private companies make specific-skilled employees available for (charitable) organizations during their working time.

New recovery procedure for unchallenged claims

Undefined

Companies are often confronted with debtors letting the agreed payment period expire without any statement of reasons. Such payment arrears are difficult to anticipate and are therefore all the more harmful for the company’s liquidity. Especially in times where the financial institutions are reluctant to provide external financing, such defaults can cause serious financial damage to companies.

In order to halt these practices and to assist the companies in the recovery of unchallenged monetary claims, article 10 of Directive 2011/7/EU on combating late payment in commercial transactions requires the European member states to provide for a simplified and expedited procedure specific in relation to such claims.

Collective dismissals: the information and consultation procedure

Undefined

In 2016, several major companies have announced their intention to proceed to collective dismissals. Yet Belgium is one of the member of the OECD that offers the best protection to workers in case of collective dismissal. The Renault Act, edicted in response to Renault’s blatant non-observance of existing law at the closure of its plant in Vilvoorde in 1997, aims to establish a dialogue between the employer who intends to proceed to a collective dismissal and the workers’ representatives, to better protect the workers’ rights and involve them in the process.
In this context, it is useful to examine what is exactly provided by the Renault Act. The purpose of this contribution is to remind and focus on the employers’ obligations in terms of workers’ information and consultation in the event of projected collective dismissal.

Towards a New Belgian Company Code

Undefined

Belgian corporate law is envisaging a new challenge: a new company code will be launched. The objective is to render Belgian company law more attractive for Belgian and foreign entrepreneurs conducting business in- and outside Belgian territory by only retaining four legal forms: the partnership, the private limited liability company, the public limited liability company and the co-operative company with limited liability.  The intentions are ambitious and the new Company code strives to more simplification, flexibility, abolition of outdated rules and types of companies and a strong supplementary law.
