Setting up for business
Under Belgian law, an employment contract must comply with certain conditions. Specific clauses can be included such as a trial period, a non-competition clause and arbitration clauses.
The elements of the employment contract (for instance, the nature of the work; a description of duties, if this has been set down in the contract; the working hours and the place where the work is to be performed) cannot be unilaterally modified by the employer or by the employee. The contract must be performed under the conditions, at the time and in the place agreed.
