EDITO of the newsletter the OFFICI@L – No. 81 – December 2022

Dear readers,

This last issue of the OFFICI@L of 2022 is also an opportunity to wish you a happy holiday season and all the best for the new year.

Please remember that this is also your publication and we would be delighted to hear your feedback on the topics you would like to see covered. Please do not hesitate to write to us (

In this new issue, we take a look at the duty of care.

In terms of case law, a judgment handed down on 5 October 2022 gives us the opportunity to examine the conditions under which the Administration may terminate an employment contract at the end of a sick leave.

Finally, in Belgian law, we will look at some new developments in private international law with the entry into force of the Brussels IIb Regulation.

We wish you a pleasant reading!
