Some important news in Labour law
Since the end of February 2014, four important decisions have been taken:
1. Pursuant to the grand-ducal decision dated 10 March 2014, the draft bill number 6234/03 on time savings accounts („compte épargne temps“) will no longer be discussed and has been deleted from the deputies’ agenda.
2. Pursuant to the grand-ducal decision dated 10 March 2014, the draft bill number 6584/04 on the rules governing the social elections (extension of the election period by 15 days) has also been deleted from the deputies’ agenda, given that the draft bill on the social dialogue could not enter into force prior to the social elections in 2013.
3. On 25 February 2014, the CSSF published a new circular number 14/585 on remuneration policies (Directive MIF).
4. Pursuant to the decision of the criminal court dated 20 March 2014 (number 905/2014), an employer having continued and red e-mails of an employee who left the company has been acquitted. The employer red in particular an e-mail with the reference “Private Confidential”. However, he profited from the doubt that he really wanted to read the content of the e-mail. The fact that he continued the e-mails as such has not been subject to discussions. An appeal against this decision is still possible.
