employment law

"Everything about working, independently or as part of a team"

If market opportunities are increasing for you, you’ll also want your business to grow. This means taking on new employees or deploying staff on a flexible basis. Whatever approach you adopt, you will often face practical challenges:

  • What kind of employment relationship will you choose?
  • What legal implications will that have?
  • How will you record the agreements you make?
  • What rules regarding remuneration apply?

Working together with you as an employer
Van der Steenhoven advocaten ensure that you know exactly what your rights and responsibilities are as an employer.

Dismissals, reorganisations and changes to terms and conditions of employment all call for proper consultation and close collaboration in which the employee participation body (the works council) has an important role to play.

We adopt a proactive approach and deliver results. Practical and creative solutions are characteristic of our working method. With a focus on the company and its staff, we help your transition from the existing situation to where you want to be.

Legal proceedings
Sometimes a legal procedure becomes inevitable. It may involve a conflict at work or a dispute about the non-competition clause, and you and your employee cannot reach agreement. Or perhaps you wish to terminate the contract of employment with an employee. We’ll work with you to take the action that is required.
