Between Luxembourg and Germany

As a result of the current crisis related to the Covid-19 pandemic and the measures taken to contain the spread of the virus, many German cross-border workers are increasingly working from home in order not to endanger their health and that of other workers.

Luxembourg and Germany have agreed that days of teleworking from the main residence, due to the measures to combat the pandemic, can be considered as working days in the country in which the activity is usually carried out.

The days of teleworking of the cross-border worker during the Covid 19 pandemic should therefore not be taken into account for the calculation of the 19-day limit provided for in the declaration of interpretation between Germany and Luxembourg of 26 May 2011.

This time-limited arrangement applies from 11 March 2020. The detailed arrangements for the application of this agreement will be notified at a later stage.
