Employee participation law

The Employee participation section of De Voort is among the main providers of legal services in this field of law in the Netherlands. We advise and support employee participation entities, but also management boards that need to address participation questions, both in the private and public sector. We do not merely focus on legal aspects, but also look into strategy and process related matters. We regularly work together with other disciplines, for instance with organisation consultants, trainers and tax experts.

We provide support during for instance advice projects, develop participation structures, draw up company contracts and draw up or check redundancy plans. If the case requires, we also litigate. In addition to that we provide advice in the field of pensions (participants' councils), support participation councils (education) and client councils (health care). The principle is: direct lines and clear, practical advice.

In this field of law we are a leading authority in the Netherlands. We share this expertise by means of many publications in professional journals, by conducting lectures and writing books (including the authoritative book "Wet op de Ondernemingsraden" (published by Paris) and publications in the "Inzicht"-serial).
