Collective Labour Agreement

The lawyers at De Haij & Van der Wende have extensive knowledge and experience in the field of collective employment law. Many employees in the Netherlands are (indirectly) covered by a collective labour agreement (“CLA”). The collective labour agreement is therefore an essential element of the terms and conditions of employment. Business owners and companies often have questions about the collective labour agreement. Am I obliged to fall under this collective labour agreement, or could I fall under a different collective labour agreement based on the work area? What should I pay attention to when drafting my own (company) collective labour agreement? What scope does the collective labour agreement give for my own employment conditions regulations or deviations?

These are just some of the questions that you may have in you mind as a business owner. We have a lot of experience and can provide a lot of advice and guidance when it comes to collective employment law. It pays to receive legal support when you make changes to your terms and conditions of employment, or when you want to switch to another (or your own) collective labour agreement.
