To resign or dismiss an employee, there are some rules that apply.
Get informed about your rights and obligations in a clear way.
It can also happen that your employer wants to dismiss you, but the word is not out yet. A good example of such a situation is placement in an improvement program or toughening of discussions. In such a case, there is still plenty you can do to avoid dismissal, such as putting together a strong dossier.

Of course, it can happen: your employer wants to end the employment relationship and has offered a settlement agreement. As unpleasant as that is, adequate preparation is important.
When an employee’s contract is terminated via the subdistrict court or the UWV, this employee is entitled to a transition payment. But, the transition fee can be much higher, for example, in the case of dismissal by mutual consent. This is called a severance payment. Calculate the transition fee with our calculation tool.
In the settlement agreement, the agreements that are made about the dismissal, for example, a transition payment with factor 2 or 3 can be included. This means that the transition payment will be 2 or 3 times higher. Arbeidsjurist Eindhoven can help you with this. We represent your interests in all matters related to the dismissal.
Both employer and employee can, before going to court or the UWV, first propose to dissolve the contract by mutual consent. This is called the dismissal by mutual consent. In the case of dismissal by mutual consent, agreements on the dismissal are made between the employee and the employer regarding, for example, severance pay. These agreements are recorded on paper in a termination agreement. Also called the settlement agreement (vaststellingsovereenkomst) in legal jargon.
A direct dismissal can take place without prior permission from the UWV or the court, but there must be an urgent reason for this. A direct dismissal can always be challenged if the employee disagrees with the dismissal. Arbeidsjurist Eindhoven advises and litigates in dismissal procedures.

A settlement agreement is drawn up when employee and employer agree on the dismissal. Agreements about the dismissal are then made between employee and employer, which are then recorded on paper. In this way, a dismissal is negotiated and can be very beneficial to you. Arbeidsjurist Eindhoven will look at your situation and the proposal for the settlement agreement and will negotiate for you the best possible conditions for your dismissal. We also check to see whether there are any unexpected errors in the agreement, as a result of which you cannot, for example, apply for unemployment benefit.
Of course, it may also happen that you yourself want to resign. Often employees do not know exactly what their rights and obligations are when they want to resign. Do you need to submit a letter of resignation? What is the notice period? Are you entitled to severance or transition pay? Arbeidsjurist Eindhoven answers all these questions.
