Hiring Practices in Luxembourg

In Luxembourg, before recruiting an employee and drawing up an employment contract, employers must first submit a declaration of vacant position to the National Employment Administration.

During the recruitment process, the employer may use different techniques such as a job interview or a selection test. Also, an excerpt from the criminal record may be requested (and be kept by the employer for a maximum period of 24 months).

However, employers who wish to hire new employees must inform of any suitable vacant position the former employees dismissed for economic reasons.
