Employment Law Chronicle
16 August 2019
Last year, the Dutch Supreme Court pronounced a large number of rulings in the field of the Work and Security Act (Wet werk en zekerheid). Therefore, a large part of this Chronicle deals with those decisions. The items discussed include rulings on the grounds for dismissal, the transition allowance and the fair compensation, the obligation to pay wages after immediate dismissal and a number of procedural aspects. Furthermore, attention will be paid to case law on #metoo and the rulings of the European Court of Justice on the lapse of holidays. Finally, we will discuss a number of relevant developments in laws and regulations.
