Employment law

EMPLOYMENT LAW

Working conditions, illness, dismissal, reorganisations and employee participation: wherever people work, employment law issues arise. Issues you want to have properly arranged, as an employer and as an employee. Our employment law lawyers are happy to help you on your way. By ensuring clear agreements and, in the event of a dispute, providing a solution.

Your challenges

As an employer, you may be faced with a wide range of employment law issues. A few of the issues you may face:

  • How to put the continuously changing laws and regulations into practice
  • How to ensure proper (recording of) agreements before, during and after an employment contract
  • How to operate efficiently and effectively during a reorganisation and how to involve the works council
  • What to do in the event of a sick employee, dismissal or labour dispute

As an employee, it is also important to know what your rights and obligations are. For example, when signing an employment contract, incapacity for work, a labour dispute or dismissal. You can resolve and even prevent a dispute, large or small, with the right advice.
