Luxembourg's Ministry of Social Security confirmed today that the Grand Duchy and France have agreed to extend their agreement on cross-border workers' social security affiliation for teleworking linked to the COVID-19 pandemic until 15 November 2021.

The derogatory provisions which would have ended on 30 September are thus maintained until mid-November 2021. The new date (15 November) corresponds with the end of the state of emergency linked to the health crisis in France.

This agreement avoids a change of affiliation if the 25% threshold provided for in European legislation is exceeded for the workers concerned. Concretely, this means that a cross-border worker residing in France who carries out his / her work from home due to the pandemic continues to be affiliated to the Luxembourg social security system.
