Employment law

Your employee is chronically ill. With major implications for your business. What are your rights and obligations in the event of an employment issue? Salary penalties, transition fees, administrative penalties: employment law can cost you dearly if you are not well prepared.

Wat is employment law?

Employment law regulates the working relationship between employees and employers. The employment market is now changing rapidly: the average age of workers increases, as does the use of temporary employees or freelancers too. These changes are reflected immediately in employment law. VAR WWZ, WAADI WAS; one scheme after another is introduced or disappears.
