Business Service Lawyers

Business Lawyers Netherlands,

Business services are among the fastest growing branches of industry in the Netherlands. If we include agency workers, this sector has more employees than the entire sector. Most business services companies are small and have ten members of staff or less. The threshold to start a business is low, as the provision of business services does in general demand relatively few investments in buildings, machines and stocks. As a legal firm, we ourselves form part of this diverse sector.

The lawyers of Leeman Verheijden Huntjens work closely together with a number of civil-law notaries from Rotterdam and various regional accountancy firms. Clients are also referred to one another if there is such a need. The fact that they are seen as a good and reliable partner by these parties is a big compliment for our firm.

Our client portfolio includes IT companies, accountants, tax specialists, facilities service providers and estate agents.  Our team advises them during internal issues about structure and collaboration, but also in the case of mergers, dissolution and the realisation of joint ventures. We are also closely involved in preparing and concluding contracts, general terms and conditions and we provide advice about employment contracts and reorganisations. Our litigation lawyers are ready for any legal proceedings.

No-risk policy: points of attention for employers

In this article we discuss the so-called 'no-risk policy' and points of attention for employers who employ personnel with a no-risk policy. We discuss what the policy entails and what this means for the reintegration obligations when the employee becomes disabled.

Right to consent of Works Council: what to do in case of refusal by Works Council (WC)?

A Works Council (WC) has a right to consent with regard to proposed decisions to adopt, amend or repeal a regulation pursuant to Section 27 of the WOR. But what if the Works Council refuses to give its consent to the implementation of the resolution? Is that reasonable, or do the interests of the employer outweigh the interests? And what can the entrepreneur do? In this article we answer these questions by discussing the right of the Works Council to consent and the possibilities open to the entrepreneur in case of refusal.

Turboliquidation

The government expects that as a result of covid-19, a significant number of entrepreneurs will want to end their business in the short term using the turbo liquidation. The government fears abuse and has drafted a proposal to protect the position of creditors and to increase transparency on this scheme. This proposal has been submitted for consultation.

Actions against non-competition agreements

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? These questions and more are addressed in this article. We also briefly discuss the judgment of the Court of Appeal of Amsterdam of 16 February 2021.
