When do you engage an employment lawyer?

It is often thought that an employment lawyer only works for employees, but this is not the case. Employers can also engage an employment lawyer. In fact, an employment lawyer provides support during various types of labour conflicts in the workplace. Both employers and employees can come to us for personal advice.

For employers

Typically, an employment lawyer is engaged in situations where legal expertise and advice on employment law is needed. For example, as an employer, you might engage an employment lawyer to:

  • Draft or amend employment contracts;
  • Handle employment disputes or dismissal cases;
  • Supervise reorganisations or restructuring;
  • Interpret collective bargaining agreements and terms and conditions of employment;
  • Advise on employment law legislation and regulations;
  • Draft company policies on employment law issues;
  • Represent the company in legal proceedings relating to employment law.

Engaging an employment lawyer helps protect the company’s interest and minimises potential risks. Employment lawyers ensure that the company is in compliance with applicable laws and regulations in the field of employment law.

For employees

Engage an employment law firm if you have a conflict with your employer. For example, if you want to have a settlement agreement reviewed or if you have ended up in dismissal proceedings. You can also ask an employment lawyer to:

  • Handle employment disputes;
  • Advise on rights and obligations in the event of incapacity for work or illness;
  • Represent you in dismissal procedures;
  • Supervise negotiations in the event of, for example, a settlement agreement;
  • Handle istant dismissals, via the subdistrict court or the UWV;
  • Help you claim back pay;
  • Negotiate severance pay.
