In Belgium, professional recruitment agency fees range from 22-27% of the first-year annual base salary of a recruited employee. Recruitment agencies also require an upfront retainer and payment in advance installments of the agency fee based on milestones such as start of recruitment, presentation of candidates, and scheduling interviews with a candidate shortlist.

Indefinite employment agreements are generally terminated through serving a notice period or the payment of an indemnity in lieu of notice.
Belgium notice periods vary based on seniority. Because there’s no probationary period, notice periods in Belgium were made to be shorter for employees in the first 6 months. Notice periods by seniority are as follows:
In Belgium, notice must be given in writing and specify the start date and the length of the notice period. If the contract is terminated by the employer, notice must be served by registered mail. It’s also important that notice is given in the correct language.
If the employment contract is terminated with the payment of an indemnity in lieu of notice, no specific formalities need to be complied with.
