The hiring of the third to the sixth worker is even more advantageous !

The reductions for first hirings have been officially modified. The reductions granted to the employer for the hiring of the third to the sixth worker have been increased and harmonised. The new amounts are only applicable to appointments made from 1st January 2017.

What benefits exist from 1st January?

The government wants to encourage small employers to employ staff and, with this in mind, has decided to make appointing the third to the sixth worker even more advantageous from this year. Thus, the reduction amounts are increased and agreed upon during a longer period. The reduction is simplified: the applicable amounts are now identical for all workers concerned.

The conditions concerning the hiring of a first and second worker and the general rules concerning the granting of a reduction for the first appointments remain unchanged.
