Team Labour Law is a trusted partner of choice for entrepreneurs and HR managers in the field of labour law and employment law. Our team consists of lawyers who have many years of experience in labour and employment law. We keep abreast of all labour law regulations and legislative changes. And we closely follow trends in the labour market, such as ‘hybrid working’, the platform economy, employee ownership, and new methods of performance appraisal. We therefore know exactly what is going on in your HR environment.

The Labour Team assists employers in the field of labour law, employment law and HRM. This includes supporting employers in matters of HR compliance, policy, and in making strategic HR decisions. We also assist employers in the event of disputes with the works council and/or trade unions. And we advise and litigate on individual dismissal situations (e.g. summary dismissal, dismissal due to poor performance, conflict, etc.), individual agreements with employees such as non-compete clauses and collective labour law. In addition, we have extensive experience in (settlement) negotiations and mediation. We can also assist you with proceedings at the Employee Insurance Agency (UWV), the IND and the Labour Inspectorate.

Our labour law specialists are also well-versed in social security legislation, the transfer of businesses, restructuring and employee participations.
