What is the Minister of Labour’s assessment of the training offered in the context of short-time work?

As a means to prevent redundancies during the economic slowdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the government of Luxembourg introduced a short-time working scheme. Additionally, the Ministry of Labour, Employment and the Social and Solidarity Economy offered vouchers for training. The members of parliament André Bauler and Carole Hartmann are enquiring about the Minister of Labour’s assessment of this training scheme.

« Durant la phase aiguë de la crise pandémique, Monsieur le Ministre du Travail, de l’Emploi et de l’Économie sociale et solidaire avait décidé de soutenir les personnes se trouvant au chômage partiel en leur offrant des formations continues dans les domaines les plus divers.

Voilà pourquoi nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre du Travail, de l’Emploi et de l’Économie sociale et solidaire:

  • Monsieur le Ministre peut-il fournir des statistiques en la matière, données qui distinguent selon l’âge, le sexe, la provenance professionnelle, le niveau d’éducation des gens ou encore le lieu de résidence – si faire se peut ?
  • Quel a été le taux de participation parmi toutes les personnes éligibles ?
  • Combien de personnes ont participé à des formations mettant l’accent principal sur l’apprentissage de techniques digitales ?
  • Dans quelle mesure les participants ont-ils changé d’emploi en se dirigeant vers d’autres horizons professionnels »

Strengthening the rights of pregnant self-employed workers

Pregnant employees can apply for dispensation from work before their maternity leave, for example if they are unable to work for health reasons. The self-employed do not have this option, which can have a negative impact on the recalculation of their maternity benefits.
DP MPs Carole Hartmann and Mandy Minella have asked the relevant ministers whether paid dispensation from work or an equivalent mechanism will be introduced for pregnant self-employed workers.


Is a pharmacy coming to Bettendorf?

In 2023, the then Minister of Health rejected the installation of a pharmacy in Bettendorf. As the population in the region around Bettendorf continues to grow, DP MP André Bauler has asked the new Minister of Health whether she would reconsider her predecessor’s decision. Has the Minister of Health possibly already been contacted by the municipality of Bettendorf and could other municipalities get a new pharmacy?


Introduction of skin cancer screening?

Since 2008, skin cancer screening has been available in Germany for all policyholders aged 35 and over. As a result, many cases of skin cancer are detected earlier.
DP MPs André Bauler and Gilles Baum wanted to know from the Minister for Health how skin cancer figures have developed here in the country since 2013, whether such screening would also be useful in Luxembourg and why only figures for melanoma (black skin cancer) are collected.
