De arbeidsrechtelijke onderwerpen in het regeerakkoord

The Netherlands: last week, the government may have been finally composed and it has already tackled employment law with changes on:

  • the dismissal right –> dismissal grounds increased, as well as the compensation + transition fees to start from the first year and amounting to a third of the salary
  • flexibility –> the 6 months between fixed-contracts will be flexibilized + their maximum duration (prior permanent) will be 3 years (instead of 2) + maximum probation period (for permanent contracts, up to 5 months) + easier conditions for 0-hours contracts
  • the sick employee;
  • the self-employed (zzp’er).

For the records, by means of an appeal, Uber can still extend its licence by some months.
