Home » Specialist areas » Employees » Reorganisation


A reorganisation means that major changes have to be made within a company. This may be the case, for example, due to technological developments or deteriorating economic conditions. In addition, an organisational change, for example as a result of a takeover or merger, may give rise to a reorganisation. Our Employment Law specialists can assist you with all changes that need to be implemented within your company as part of the reorganisation.

To a large extent, an employer has the freedom to organise the company as he sees fit. However, a reorganisation can have far-reaching consequences for the employees involved. If jobs are lost as a result of the reorganisation, this will lead to the redeployment or dismissal of employees. It is often not immediately clear whose job will be lost. In order to determine this, a number of rules apply. In addition to a thorough knowledge of these rules, effective application of these rules also requires good preparation and the necessary creativity.

Actions against non-competition agreements

May 11, 2021|

Many employees have a non-compete agreement, and many employers come into contact with potential employees who have a non-compete agreement. The question that then arises is, can the employee join a new company? Or in other words, is the non-competition clause legally valid, can the current employer successfully invoke the clause, or can the non-competition clause perhaps be (partially) voided?

Employee leaving sick: what about premium differentiation?

April 26, 2021|

Are you familiar with the financial consequences of a sick employee leaving your company? The Sickness Benefits Act and WGA premiums are differentiated. This means that the premiums depend on the inflow of employees who became ill on the last day of their employment or within 4 weeks after the dismissal date. In this article we discuss the premium differentiation and the calculation of this premium.
