Indeed, our social protection system differs from certain countries, and it may be useful to provide your new foreign employees with the right information regarding the procedures to follow.
In the event of sick leave, it is the mutual insurance company that pays benefits to the employee. You therefore need to register with a Belgian mutual insurance company when you're working in Belgium in order to be covered in the event of incapacity for work and receive benefits. This registration also allows your employee to be covered by the social security of his or her country of residence and to obtain reimbursement for his or her healthcare.
