WK Lawyers often represent expats based in the Netherlands or abroad with employment related matters. All our lawyers are fluent in English.
We advise and litigate on behalf of employers and employees on these subjects:
A company in financial distress may need to let go some employees. Dutch law is very strict as to which employees qualify for dismissal on this basis.
