Is a second job legal?


Hi everyone,
Couldn't clarify this with Belgian friends so I'm asking here. I currently work about 37/week in Brussels. I would like to get a part-time weekend job for extra income. A friend suggested that working over 40 hours a week is prohibited in Belgium. I find this odd as I thought the rule applied only to the employer. Does anyone know the rules regarding a second job? Many thanks.


No - not illegal. But you need to check your existing employment contract and see if you're not breaching it by doing a 2nd job.
