Our field

Labour Law

Labour law is pre-eminently an area of operation in which it pays to arrange things properly in advance, so problems afterwards can be prevented to the extent possible.

Labour law specialists for all your employment contracts

Clear agreements make it easier to retain good staff and dismiss poorly performing employees. Especially in today’s tight labour market, this is very important for you as an entrepreneur. The labour law lawyers and legal experts of Marxman understand this all too well. Therefore you can rely on us for clear:

  • Employment contracts
  • Terms and conditions of employment
  • Staff regulations

As an entrepreneur, you are sure to benefit from this.

Legal advice in the event of dismissal of an employee

Sometimes it is inevitable that a company and an employee go their own ways. For instance as a result of economic reasons, an employment conflict or because the employee does not perform well. Our team of lawyers has extensive experience with law relating to dismissal. Together with you, we consider the various options to dismiss an employee. This includes considering the option of mediation. Are court proceedings or a procedure with the Employee Insurance Agency still necessary? Then we will, of course, take care of this for you.

Marxman also supervises reorganisations from A to Z. Not only when there is an economic need, but also when the company simply benefits from it, the technological developments give rise thereto or when the company relocates.

Legal advice in the event of the dismissal of a director under the articles of association

How can you dismiss a director under the articles of association? Does the director work under an employment contract or a management contract? What does this mean for the termination of directorship under the articles of association? And what do the articles of association say about the dismissal of a director under the articles of association?

All these questions are answered by our specialists. Based on these answers, we will develop a strategy together with you. Because we assist both directors under the articles of association and entrepreneurs (shareholders), we are familiar with the various arguments on both sides of the table.

Labour law and privacy specialists

Due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), privacy is an important and topical subject, also within companies. Especially since the privacy of employees is subject to strict requirements and specific rules. For example in the case of camera surveillance at work. For applicants and employees who are ill, the Dutch Data Protection Authority has even drawn up separate policy rules. Our specialist lawyers can help you identify the data you process about your staff and tell you what requirements you need to meet.

In some cases, you will need to involve the works council in privacy issues, while in other cases you should not. We can tell you exactly what to do in which situation. This allows us to map out a route together in order to achieve the most efficient and best possible result for your company.

Moreover, it has been shown that many entrepreneurs benefit from an initial inventory by means of one of our HR privacy scans at www.avgscan.nl, since you often process more data than you might initially think.

Labour law and flex industry specialists

Marxman assists many companies that provide personnel services. This group of companies is subject to specific collective labour agreements and regulations, including the Placement of Personnel by Intermediaries Act (Waadi). Our lawyers are always up to date with the latest state of affairs and regulations in this sector. This means that we have a complete overview of this area, which allows us to switch quickly. We advise both parties that hire staff flexibly and companies that place staff flexibly, for example from a temporary employment structure or secondment.

For many entrepreneurs in this sector, the mandatory pension funds are a complicated issue. We have provided a lot of advice on StiPP, the pension fund for companies that provide personnel services, and thus successfully ensured that our client was not obliged to join.

Full service provision

Many legal issues within the field of Labour Law overlap with the fields of Corporate Law, Mergers & Acquisitions and Restructuring & Bankruptcy. Our lawyers also have extensive experience in these fields of expertise. If necessary, our specialists work closely together. This ensures you will receive a full range of services.
