17 June 2021: Employment Webinar “Tricky sickness issues”

Publication date: 17 June 2021
If your employee reports sick, this may raise many difficult questions. What are your reintegration obligations during the sick leave period? What are you allowed to record about your sick employee with regard to the privacy legislation? And what if you want to dismiss your employee, for example, due to a reorganization – is that possible? What is the role of the Works Council in the context of employee sickness? Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic provides additional points of interest.

During the webinar, Priscilla de Leede and Eileen Pluijm gave a practical explanation of these and other questions. Watch the video!
