Extension of short-time work in the construction sector

Due to the shortage of raw materials and other materials, the government has decided to extend short-time work in the construction sector until June. In this context, DP MPs André Bauler and Carole Hartmann have asked the responsible ministers, among other things, how many companies are affected by this and which conditions have to be fulfilled in order to apply for short-time work.

« Il nous revient que le gouvernement a décidé d’octoyer le financement du chômage partiel à certaines entreprises du secteur de la construction en raison de la pénurie de matières premières et de matériaux. Voilà pourquoi nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre du Travail, de l’Emploi et de l’Économie sociale et solidaire et à Monsieur le Ministre de l’Économie :

  • Quels sont les critères précis à respecter avant de se voire octroyer, dans ce scénario particulier, le bénéfice du chômage partiel?
  • Combien d’entreprises du secteur de la construction sont concernées ? Quel est le nombre de personnes qui se verront en situation de chômage partiel? 
  • Quels sont les matières premières et matériaux qui sont devenus plus rares? S’agit-il d’un phénomène plutôt passager ou faudra-t-il s’attendre à une pénurie persistante ? »

What happens if joint custody agreements are breached or if children are kidnapped by a partner?

In case of a divorce, shared custody is often a compromise used to help determine who has custody of the children, when and for how long. However, what is agreed upon is not always respected by the ex-partners. More and more frequently, cases become known where partners keep the children with them for longer than agreed or doesn’t allow them to return to the other partner.
