Diplomat Magazine seminar 20191002

On 2 October 2019, in collaboration with Diplomat Magazine, Russell Advocaten hosted a – diplomats only – seminar in The Hague. The subject of this well-attended event was “Dutch labour law and investing in the Netherlands – an update for Diplomats”.

Agenda

The agenda contained the following:

  • (New) Dutch dismissal law
  • Labour Market in Balance Act
  • Employee illness
  • Investment in the Netherlands

The highly interactive meeting focused in particular on Dutch dismissal law and the mandatory transition compensation.

Key issues

Key issues for Embassies include:

  • As from next year, every employee who does not quit himself is entitled to a transition allowance from day 1, even in the event of a temporary contract. Even though this obligation does not apply to termination agreements, a minimum comparable compensation will have to be paid in that case too.
  • As from next year, you may conclude three year contracts in a row.
  • Every employer, including Embassies, must call in an occupational health and safety officer/company doctor in the event of illness of employees.
  • It will be possible to combine reasons for dismissal.
  • A wage sanction may be imposed in the event of inadequate supervision of ill employees.
  • Legal assistance is required to set up a company in the Netherlands. Consult for example www.startingabusinessnl.com.

Russell Advocaten regularly publishes updates for Embassies on www.embassydesk.nl, the website for diplomats. You can also read our posts on the website of Diplomat Magazine.
