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. But sometimes such temporary solutions are not sufficient and employers might have to reorganize their company. Then, dismissals are inevitable to guarantee the continuity of the company.

In this situation, both employer and employees face challenges: 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. will discuss these questions during a practical webinar in cooperation with IN Amsterdam.
