In advice and negotiations about dismissal and severance payment we balance the legal side with the human and intuitive side, to get the best possible outcome.We draw on our wide experience in cases representing both employers and employees in complex and straightforward employment cases. We know what the other party will do and can anticipate on this to your benefit.
A decisive argument is whether the employer has a reasonable ground (“redelijke grond”) for dismissal or termination. If the employer can prove a reasonable ground not more than the statutory severance payment (“transitievergoeding”) is due.
Because the standard of proof is rather high, in about 70-80% the Cantonal Courts reject the request of employers to terminate on grounds of alleged bad performance. Most cases of layoff, dismissal and termination are settled because the grounds are often disputable or hard to prove. As a result settlements contain higher or much higher severance payment than the statutory amounts.
We will negotiate, firmly and constructively, to achieve the best settlement conditions, with your interest at heart. We are very successful in reaching the the most practical solution preferably out of court. You will experience strong support and no nonsense legal advice to get the best possible outcome.
