Netherlands -Sick pay for flex workers disputed -November 28, 2013

Employers are campaigning against new laws on sick pay aimed at giving more rights to people on flexible contracts. Companies which employ large numbers of people on flexible contracts are worried they will be saddled with large bills if their temporary workforce becomes ill. While companies which employ staff through an agency will not have to foot the bill, employers who employ temporary staff directly, or have staff on zero hour contracts, may be liable. The new act is back-dated to January 2012.
