If the agreement is signed, German cross-border workers will be able to benefit from up to 40% remote work while remaining affiliated with the Luxembourgish social security system.
This would correspond to two days a week. At the moment, the threshold for German cross-border workers is 25%.
According to Minister of Social Security Claude Haagen, the agreement is expected to be signed by June, "if everything goes well."
Haagen added that Belgium is also willing to pursue a similar agreement, if no solution is found at EU level. Meanwhile, the government is involved in "technical discussions" with France but has not entered bilateral negotiations yet.
