Temporary assignment involves a number of labour law and contractual aspects. The assignment of employees requires specific knowledge and strategic advice many steps along the way. Not only because the laws and regulations are complex, but also because it is a specialisation and departs from ordinary law in certain respects. Knowledge of the flex market and an overview of all relevant aspects are a must.

That is why you engage us.

We specialise in issues relating to the ABU and NBBU collective agreements and we assist temporary employment agencies and payroll companies in disputes with, among others, the SNCA, trade unions, StiPP, the Dutch Labour Standards Foundation (SNA) and the Dutch Social Affairs and Employment Inspectorate (Inspectorate SZW). In addition to providing advice and conducting legal proceedings, we draft watertight contracts.

Recruiters are responsible for attracting, recruiting and selecting the right people for certain positions and for creating a match between job seekers and available positions. This is achieved by deploying professionals to the client in various ways; on the basis of either interim secondment or permanent placement. Proper contractual embedding is of the utmost importance, and so is good advice on liability and privacy, so as to adequately protect the company interests.

That is why you engage us

We are a sounding board for all legal aspects of recruitment. Please contact us especially when it comes to non-compete clauses, privacy or drafting the correct (general) terms and conditions
