In a bid to keep its job market fresh and attract new workers, Belgium has been cracking down on employers who refuse to register workers as part of an agreement with EU countries.
The government says the rule is designed to make sure employers can’t hide behind a system that is too complicated and cumbersome to use.
The system will make it harder for employers to skirt the rules by requiring them to notify employees within six weeks if they want to use a visa system, and to pay a fee for each new worker they hire, as well as by making it easier to file for bankruptcy.
Belgium also wants to change how the system works by making sure that it doesn’t take place in the same way as the US.
Under the deal with the EU, countries with fewer than 100,000 workers can opt out of the system by asking that they only pay for those workers that are already registered in the system.
For the most part, that means companies that have fewer than 50,000 employees will not have to register them, while companies with 50,001 to 99,999 workers will.
But the government has been taking the threat of an injunction to court to try to stop the new system from taking effect.
The country’s government said it would ask a judge to rule that the system is unconstitutional.
The government says it can take legal action against the employers if they refuse to comply with the rules.
The EU’s Office for the Co-operation of European Supervision (OES) has been investigating whether the system violates the agreement.EU member states have been struggling to keep up with a flood of workers leaving the EU.
In recent months, the EU has taken steps to rein in employers who are refusing to register their workers.
The rules were passed last year, in a compromise with Germany and France, after the two countries were among the first countries to announce that they would phase out the system that has been in place for years.
