Reorganisations and dismissals

As an employer, you may be forced to carry out a reorganisation or restructuring. Reorganising or restructuring can mean that jobs are lost and employees have to be laid off. The legal aspects involved can be tricky. These include the justification of economic or organisational reasons, the principle of workforce reduction, the Employee Insurance Agency (UWV) dismissal procedure, the drafting of a Social Plan and the possible applicability of the Collective Redundancy (Notification) Act. Communication with your employees and consultation with trade unions and works councils are also important aspects.

Good preparation and an effective step-by-step plan are indispensable during reorganisation and restructuring. In close consultation with you, our employment law specialists will guide you through the restructuring or reorganisation process with concrete and practical advice. If necessary, we call in other Cees specialists.
