Employment law representation for expats

WK Lawyers often represent expats based in the Netherlands or abroad with employment related matters. All our lawyers are fluent in English.

EMployment law

We advise and litigate on behalf of employers and employees on these subjects:

  • Employee dismissal
  • Con-compete clause of company relations clause
  • Trial period
  • Discrimination
  • Transfer of undertaking
  • Employment agreements
  • Collective labour agreements
  • Ill employees
  • Labor disputes
  • Expats

Reorganizations

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. Within every group of employees performing the same duties, a balanced distribution needs to be made. If the employer fails to do this properly, the UWV will deny the request for a dismissal permit for the employee.
