Employment Event

12 September 2022
Amsterdam
3:00 PM
On Monday 12 September, we are hosting the Employment Event in Amsterdam. During the event, some of our lawyers will be interviewed about recent legal developments:

THE CONTRACT: ON PAPER AND IN PRACTICE

The distinction between an employment contract and a contract for the provision of services is not always simple in actual practice. Legal proceedings in which a contractor suddenly claims to be an employee with all the legal protection corresponding to an employment contract are hardly a rarity. Edward de Bock will tell why this distinction matters, how the contract ‘can change colour’ and which criteria are relevant for an employment contract.

REORGANISATION: POINTS TO CONSIDER AND PITFALLS

A worsened financial position or an adaptation of the strategy may be a reason for a company's reorganisation. A process that, both for the employer and the employee, can only be brought to a successful conclusion if great care is taken. Jet Stolk will address the points to consider for a successful reorganisation and discuss the pitfalls that should be avoided.

MONEY: SHELL OUT OR SULK?

Money plays a key role during (and at the end of) the employment contract. The law provides for two severance payments: the transition payment and an additional severance pay. It is mainly the additional severance pay that is a source of debate. The criteria for calculating this are also relevant because the risk of awarding an additional severance pay is often ‘bought off’ in a termination arrangement. Other elements, often financial ones, also play a part in coming to a termination arrangement. Arjan Adams discusses the points to consider and the dos and don'ts with respect to negotiating termination arrangements as an alternative to legal action.

In between these interviews, Naomi Dempsey will discuss some high-profile and emblematic rulings.
