I'm a developer in Belgium. We had to work during the full week-end but will get either recuperation days or money as a compensation.
What is the most advantageous to take?
Bonus question: I have heard that the money will be taxed at at least 50%, making the recuperation days more advantageous, but is it true and how big is the difference, taking into account the opportunity cost of the recuperation day. If a working day is brings 100€ net to the employee, a paid recuperation day is worth 200€ ( 100€ because it is paid, 100€ because of the opportunity cost of the holiday day ), but how does it compare to the net money compensation ( before and after tax)?
