How can we help you?

Our specialists will advise you when dismissal is unavoidable, whether it concerns dismissal by mutual consent (in the case of retirement, for instance), dismissal via UWV WERKbedrijf (the work placement branch of the Employee Insurance Agency) by means of a dismissal permit, dismissal via the sub-district court or instant dismissal. We will help you to build up a reliable file, or we will assess the existing file for its feasibility. We will then advise you about the follow-up steps, now and after 1 July 2015. And thanks to our collaboration with the legal advisers of Pellicaan Advocaten, we can use short lines in case one of those follow-up steps involve the court.

We can also offer advice when you have employees who are of retirement age but wish to continue working. In that case, our specialists will analyse the needs of both parties, we will highlight any risks and offer advice about the most appropriate type of employment contract. After all, continuing to work under the existing contract is not always the best solution in such cases.
