If you have questions about a collective agreement under Dutch law or other labour law issues in the Netherlands, please contact: many companies in the Netherlands have declared a collective agreement (“CLA”) (in Dutch: “CAD”) applicable. Under Dutch law, this CTC is compulsory for all Dutch employment contracts within the company and provides for basic terms of employment such as: payment of wages, leave rights, overtime, termination of contracts, etc. If there is no CAD, you will need an individual agreement with your employer on working conditions, preferably in writing. The rules established by law form the basis of this agreement, that is, the employment contract. In some cases, you may request paid leave for specific circumstances that are not covered by labour law. Although this category of leave is not part of labour law, it is often part of an OAC, an employment contract or an enterprise regulation. Ask HR or your employer what are the options for taking the following special leave. A fixed-term contract ends automatically and legally on the agreed date. In the case of a fixed-term contract starting at six months, the employer must indicate in writing to the worker whether the fixed-term contract ends and under what conditions. The situation changes when a party wishes to terminate the contract before the agreed date. In this case, the option to terminate the contract must be part of the contract before the end date. If the employer wishes to terminate the contract before the agreed date, it must follow a legal procedure for termination.
For more information, please contact UWV Werkbedrijf. The one-time payment also applies to student assistants and on-call students who have a collective agreement subject to the collective agreement. One reason is that they suffer particularly from COVID 19 measures. UUT-flex workers receive the one-time payment based on the average number of hours worked during January, February and March 2020. Most companies and organizations participate in a collective employment contract. It is a written agreement between one or more employers and one or more unions on the working conditions of all workers, such as wages, remuneration for extra work, working time, probation, retirement, education and childcare.
