We hosted a special webinar “COVID-19: Reorganization, Job Loss & Stay” in cooperation with IN Amsterdam on 23 March. During the webinar, we discussed issues that employers and international employees face due to the impact of the coronavirus. Watch the video today!
Many companies have been hit hard by the coronavirus and are struggling with the consequences. Employers are looking for a solution by, for example, changing the employment conditions of employees. However, sometimes such temporary solutions are not sufficient and employers might have to reorganize their company. As a result, dismissals are inevitable to guarantee the continuity of the company.
In this situation, both employer and employees face challenges. For example: Can employment contracts be unilaterally amended? What do you have to take into account in the event of a dismissal during COVID-19? What is the role of the works council in a reorganization? Are you still allowed to stay in the Netherlands after you have been dismissed?
Our employment lawyers Priscilla C.X. de Leede, LL.M. and Eileen Pluijm, LL.M. have discussed these questions during a practical webinar in cooperation with IN Amsterdam. Below you can watch this webinar.
