Simplified procedure for temporary economic unemployment in Belgium due to Corona
The Belgian federal government decided on March 20, 2020 to provide temporarily (until June 30, 2020) a simplified procedure for force majeure unemployment. You can find more information about this on the RVA (Rijksdienst voor Arbeidsvoorziening) site.
When processing wages, you must provide a specific code for the days of temporary economic unemployment. You can request this code from your social secretariat.
How does Astrow, our time and attendance software, make this procedure even easier?
Within Astrow, a new absence code is being created for temporary economic unemployment, which in turn is linked to this specific code.
The correct codes are then automatically added to your export for wages without you having to perform any additional actions!
