Subtitle:Rights of public employees weakened by the impact of digitalization in labour relations (Belgium and the Netherlands)
The contribution tries to grant an overview of two distinct but linked elements with regard to the digitalization of employment in the public sector. First, the transposition of the Framework Agreement on Telework shows how the public sector is treated as the poor relation in Belgium and the Netherlands. The second part analyses how digitalization has an impacto n the growing tendecy of flexibility in the public sector. Contracts of employment have become the standard in the Netherlands and a growing option in Belgium. Politicians invoke the search for flexibility which even leads to use of more temporary contracts and temporary forms of employment in the public due to the digitalization of the work. It seems that digitalization weakens the traditional status of public servants in Belgium and the Netherlands. Both elements indicates that labour relations in the public sector seem to be influenced and even weakened by evolutions in labour law.
