Belgium, Question n° 154 ... à la secrétaire d'État à la Lutte contre la pauvreté, à l'Égalité des chances, aux Personnes handicapées, et à la Politique scientifique, chargée des Grandes Villes, adjointe au ministre des Finances

Stéphanie Thoron
Parliamentary question to the Secretary of State for the fight against poverty, equal opportunity, persons with disabilities, and science policy (No. 154), 24 August 2015. In the context of the EU Commissioner for Social Affairs’ initiative for a European disabilty card, a question was asked to the Secretary of State to know what is being done with regard to that initiative. In support of the question, the deputee mentioned the obligation to adopt measures to facilitate the life of persons with disabilities under Article 26 of the Charter. The Charter is relevant here because a deputee is making an inquiry as to whether a practical obligation under the Charter is being respected.
CHAMBRE 2 e SESSION DE LA 54e LÉGISLATURE = KAMER 2e ZITTING VAN DE 54e ZITTINGS PERIODE

Belgium, Projet de Loir portant des dispositions diverses en matière sociale - Amendements -

Proposed amendment No. 39 to the bill pertaining to various social provisions. Article 2 of this bill sets a certain amount for the minimum wage for flexi-jobs. On the matter of that article, a parliamentary deputee invoked the Charter, in conjunction with Directive 2003/88/EC and more specifically the right of every worker to yearly paid leave to propose an amendment to the minimum wage amount. There is a clear impact of the Charter as the deputee directly invoked a very practical right provided for in the Charter to propose an amendment.
