Expats & Employment

Whether you are a foreign national living and working in the Netherlands or a Dutch citizen embarking on a foreign assignment, a move to a foreign country means immersing yourself in a new culture and dealing with new rules. These are exciting times, both for you and for your family. Naturally, you want to make sure that all the necessary arrangements are made before your move and that no legal complications await you. Look no further: the lawyers of RWV are experts 4 expats!

Signing or terminating a contract of employment

If your employer wishes to terminate your contract of employment, the most urgent question is whether he is entitled to do so. You may wonder whether, as an expatriate employee, you are entitled to severance pay or unemployment benefits. You may find yourself confronted by all sorts of problems. You need to know what to do and – perhaps even more importantly – what not to do.

Our employment lawyers know all about the special legal status of expatriate staff and the rules and regulations applying specifically to you. We can assist and advise you (and your employer, for that matter) during all stages of your employment relationship. That means not just helping if you’re faced with imminent dismissal, but also advising you on the terms of your employment contract.

Free, online legal consultation for expatriates 

Do you have a legal problem that you would like to discuss with an employment lawyer? Why not sign up for our free, online legal consultation which we organise every last Tuesday of the month from 4-5 pm. 

You can put your questions to an employment lawyer during the consultation. This takes the form of a 15-minute online meeting. If you decide at the end of this meeting that you need more time in which to discuss the matter, you can of course plan a second meeting (subject to the usual fee).
