Belgium's Unlikely To Adopt Floating Public Holidays

Source: Conseil National Belge Du Travail (Brussels)
Posted on Sunday, May 17, 2009


The Conseil National Belge Du Travail (CNT) has released an opinion paper ("avis n° 1687 du 6 mai 2009") rejecting a mandatory floating public holiday whereby each individual could choose one public holiday to match his/her religious or philosophical views.

Instead, the CNT has encouraged such possible choice on a company-wide basis, so as to minimize disruption of work.
