Labour Law and Termination
With the introduction of the Dutch Work and Security Act (WWZ), many changes were implemented in labour law. The idea behind the WWZ is, among other things, to make dismissal law simpler and cheaper. Many business people are now asking themselves whether this aim has been achieved, and experience that the WWZ actually throws up many obstacles. For example, stricter rules are imposed for dismissal. The WWZ imposes greater demands on the tasks of the employer in a wide variety of areas. This increased responsibility makes it necessary to change employment policy that has been in effect for many years.
WWZ-proof or not?
We assist business people to find the answer to this question and create more practical insight into the WWZ changes and what they mean in practice. We then help introduce a structure that is “WWZ-proof”. In this way, the employer avoids unpleasant surprises. With our resolve, dismissal law proves a lot simpler than thought. Good preparation is half the work. Something that, since the implementation of the WWZ, has become more necessary than ever.
In addition, we undertake a variety of cases in the area of staffing. We offer, for example, support in the successful implementation of change within the organisation which has consequences for the staff, such as reorganisations, in/outsourcing of staff and supporting requests for advice from the work’s council. We also have considerable experience in the area of re-integration and know how we can contribute, when employees are ill, to a successful result for employer and employee and the prevention of a wage sanction.
