Conditions of reorganization

There are a number of strict conditions that the reorganization must meet. The company must demonstrate that there is an economic reason why your job will disappear. In doing so, the principle of “age distribution” must be applied properly. The company must also check whether the dismissal can be prevented by re-employment in another suitable position.

Collective dismissals in the event of reorganization

A collective dismissal in the case of a reorganization is when more than 20 employees are dismissed within a period of 3 months. It does not matter how the company fires you, whether it is through the uwv, the courts or by mutual agreement through a settlement agreement. The company must adhere to the legal rules for collective dismissal. One condition is that the company notifies the UWV and the trade unions.

If dismissal is unavoidable, the company will generally offer a settlement agreement. This is often part of the reorganisation if re-employment in another job is not possible. In this way, the company avoids having to request a dismissal permit from the uwv. How much is the severance pay you are entitled to? The company often contributes to the costs of legal advice.
