Employment conditions
In Belgium, a minor (a person under the age of eighteen years) can conclude and terminate an employment contract, with the express or tacit consent of a parent or guardian.Under a student employment contract, young people can, from the age of fifteen, work full time during the school holidays if they are in full-time education.

The general principle is that employees and employers can no longer include a trial period in an employment contract concluded after 1 January 2014. If, despite this, a trial period clause is included, it will be regarded as invalid. Exceptions: student employment contracts and employment contracts commencing before 1 January 2014. zdroj:
