The "Wet houdende diverse bepalingen" (Law containing various provisions) was enacted in Belgium in 2010. The law contained several amendments to different legal provisions, including labor and social security laws, public procurement, and tax laws. One of the changes introduced was the requirement for employers to provide a German translation of employment contracts to German-speaking employees in certain regions of Belgium. This requirement was aimed at promoting linguistic equality and ensuring that German-speaking employees were fully informed of their employment conditions. The German translation was to be provided free of charge and had to be in compliance with the relevant legal provisions. The law was published in the Belgian official gazette and came into force on the date of publication.
