The Law of 29 October 2020[1] introduced, among other things, a ban on driving on public roads between 11pm and 6am, with a number of exceptions, including travelling for work (see our Newsflash of 3 November 2020).

Within this context, the Chamber of Commerce has provided businesses with a template certificate to justify travel for work for employees during the curfew between 11pm and 6am. This certificate is available (in French) here.

As a reminder, the curfew is in place from 30 October to 30 November 2020 inclusive.

In addition, in a press release issued on 4 November 2020, the FEDIL informed its members that employers must certify that travel by Belgian cross-border employees between their home and their place or places of work cannot be postponed or is essential for their work, which cannot be done remotely.
