Commercial redundancy/reorganisations

Commercial redundancy/reorganisations

An employer may organise and design his organisation as he wishes. Reorganisations are not always the result of a financial loss. A business sometimes needs to be set up differently in the event of a technological or organisational change. A reorganisation can lead to job losses. In this case, you are talking about commercial redundancy.

The corona crisis has also led many business owners to redesign their organisation to comply with the 1.5-metre social distancing, and they have been required to dismiss employees. Employers must then comply with the UWV (Uitvoeringsinstituut Werknemersverzekeringen) [Employee Insurance Agency] dismissal rules and apply for a dismissal permit.
