Employment law

Our employment law team advises and conducts legal proceedings on all kinds of aspects of employment law and employee participation law and distinguishes itself in these areas of law with a special focus on and a specific knowledge of the IT sector. Examples include secondment/consultancy, Waadi questions (placement of personnel by intermediaries), StiPP questions (pension fund for personnel services) and privacy issues. We also represent quite a number of clients outside the IT sector. Basically, you can consult us on any employment law issue. We represent both employers and employees.

Mediation is a good alternative for many employment law disputes. Mediation prevents a legal battle, ensures lasting solutions and is faster and cheaper than litigation. Parties themselves take control of both the dispute and the solution and, therefore, they do not depend on a judge.

Our mediator Marion Hagenaars (MfN registered mediator (Mediators Federation in the Netherlands)) combines her long and extensive experience and expertise in the field of employment law and employee participation law with her skills to help parties find a quick and practical solution within a safe setting.
