Netherlands -Payroll companies concerned about new legislation -December 04, 2014

Payroll companies have said that legislation coming into force on 1 January 2015 is unclear. A new law will align the protection of payroll employees against dismissal with that of permanent employees at the client firms. The major change with the current regime is that firms will no longer be able to dismiss workers on payroll contracts without stating the reason.

Payroll companies have said that legislation coming into force on 1 January 2015 is unclear. A new law will align the protection of payroll employees against dismissal with that of permanent employees at the client firms. The major change with the current regime is that firms will no longer be able to dismiss workers on payroll contracts without stating the reason. Under the new law, dismissals will fall under the regular procedure, in which justifications of economic reasons for dismissal need to be provided to the public employment services (UWV). The payroll companies are saying that they support the legislation, but that its broad scope means that some temporary agency workers will inadvertently fall under the new law too.
