Labour law regulates the legal relation between employers and their employees. A large part of the labour law consists of 'binding rights'. This means that these rules always apply, irrespective of the agreements which have been made between employer and employee. The complexity of this area of law is reinforced by the fact that it is spread out over several acts and regulations and that it has a history of complex legal precedent. We can give you advice and assistance concerning the formation of employment contracts, labour disputes, procedures for terminating the employment, etc.
In case of a labour dispute, mediation may bring a solution. Conflicts at work have a lot of consequences for the people concerned and for the other employees of the enterprise. An impartial and expert mediator can help you break through the impasse without damaging the relation between parties, so that the relation can continue without problems. When a legal action is started, parties usually can’t get along any longer. Moreover, mediation offers more possibilities for creative solutions than legal proceedings. The outcome is not imposed by the mediator; the parties themselves stipulate what the solution looks like. In most cases this leads to a satisfactory result, for both parties. If it should appear that a mutual solution is not possible or desirable, all legal means remain available to you.
