On 1 July 2015, the Wet werk and zekerheid (Wwz,Work and Security Act) came into force, which entails a substantial change of the law on termination of employment. Prior to 1 July 2015, companies had to adapt their HR policy because of the new act, before having had any practical experience with it. During this phase, we supported companies with reviewing their dismissal policy in case of inadequate performance and with implementing changes in their CLAs and redundancy packages, among other things.
We advise, for instance, in the situation in which an employee, after signing a settlement agreement, invokes the consideration period, about the pros and cons of setting up a CLA-dismissal committee, or about the timing at which it is still possible to introduce a non-competition clause in a fixed-term contract.
We have knowledge and experience that we like to use and share with others. For this reason, we are pleased to offer you the possibility to hold a free "sparring ideas" session with us on matters that are relevant to you, without any obligation. Please do not hesitate to contact Femke van Herk of Annemijn Westerduin if you wish to avail yourself of this offer.
