Employment & Pensions lawyers in the Netherlands

Meet our Employment & Pensions team

For your business to be successful, you must manage your employees and their benefits as well as your employee representatives such as works councils and unions. Yet employment and pension law in Europe is extensive, complex and, at times, contradictory. European directives, national laws, European court decisions, local cases and precedent must all be taken into account by your management team. Our 280-strong group of sector specialists can help you navigate the maze of HR regulations, policy documents and other legal complexities you must contend with on a daily basis.

If your business crosses borders, you will be faced with additional legal hurdles before achieving the outcome you need. With a global network covering more than 30 countries, we can help solve your problems across all the jurisdictions in which you operate.

We work closely together in teams consisting of lawyers, tax lawyers, pension specialists and notaries. We assist our clients with, for example:

  • Drafting and amending of labour agreements, regulations and protocols
  • Special forms of cooperation, such as freelance contracts, on-call or 'zero hours' contracts, management contracts or contracts for professional services
  • Special legal relationships, as with (semi-)servants and statutory managers
  • Labour disputes, strikes
  • Reorganisations and relocations
  • Transfers of undertakings, outsourcing and payrolling
  • Remuneration, harmonisation of employment conditions, expat agreements, employee participation plans
  • Pension related questions
  • Disability and reintegration
  • Health & safety: working conditions, whistle-blowing regulations, sexual harassment, accidents at work
  • Equal treatment
  • Co-determination
  • Collective agreements (cao)
  • Employers’ liability and directors’ liability
  • Compliance and disciplinary law
  • Foreign Nationals Employment Act
  • Data Privacy
