Clients HDK Advocaten WWZ-proof

On 31 March 2015 HDK Advocaten welcomed around 75 clients on its annual seminar. This year’s theme was ‘Spring at the Zuidas’. Juliette Huyzer and Marije Stiebner Bergman discussed the changes in employment law, which are a result of the Work & Security Act (Wet Werk en Zekerheid). In particular the radical changes in the Dutch dismissal system as per 1 July 2015 have been discussed. While enjoying a lunch in the Amsterdam’s WTC, the clients were briefed on these radical changes. As it was also HDK’s fifth anniversary, the clients were given a goodiebag to celebrate this.
