The vocational redeployment contract for jobseekers

Are you currently looking for a job?

The National Employment Agency (ADEM) can offer you a redeployment contract with an employer. You must meet several conditions, such as:

  • be registered with ADEM for at least 1 month;
  • be older than 45 years of age; or
  • currently be in an external redeployment measure; or
  • have the disabled worker status.

You cannot refuse this contract without a valid reason.

During the contract, you will receive an allowance which is equal to the social minimum wage for unskilled workers or a supplementary allowance depending on whether or not you are receiving unemployment benefits, annuities or the REVIS.

The vocational redeployment contract is concluded for a duration of 12 months. However, you or the employer can terminate the contract before its end date. For this to happen, you have to send a written request to the ADEM and obtain their prior approval.

Your employer can also offer you employment after the vocational redeployment contract expires.
