Significant changes in employment law in force as of today

Today (1 July 2015) some major amendments in Dutch employment law came into force: As a result of the Work and Security Act (Wet Werk en Zekerheid) the dismissal system changed drastically. Furthermore, the Act on Combating Sham Arrangements (Wet Aanpak Schijnconstructies) entered into force partially and the provisions regarding leave and working hours are modernized (Wet modernisering verlof en arbeidstijden). HDK Advocaten would be pleased to assist you in understanding these changes!
